My A-Bolt lightweight stalker 308 doesn't know its a light recoil gun either.[:@]. I Love the 08's both the 3 and the 7..

Hey X man, you really do need one.Just to keep the 243 company.

Hey, James B. ......Did your SPS arrive yet? Wondering if you got it and how you like it so far. Are you going to load for it? Those 7-08's love home made meals, so to speak. Just curious.............

Anything a 30 caliber can do a 7mm can do better with less recoil. JMHO.

I will tell ya don't waste the cash,buy a 280 rem you will be much happier.
I listened to everyone on how GREAT the 7mm-08 was.Got myself a Remington Mdl 7 in 7mm-08 nice trim package with a 2-7 scope.Traded it on this site 2 years ago on a 30-06 a-bolt,traded the a-bolt and bought a .280 rem.I'm now much happier.

Maybe I was expecting to much of the7-08,but I was not impressed shooting deer and watching them run 150-200 yds after the shot.I know alot of you guys find that exceptable,but I don't JMO.
I was using Federal 140 gr Noslers.

It depends which nolser load that you were using,federal lists four different nosler bullets.I found that when I used the partition,deer always ran a bit,but with the ballistic tip,they ran much less.

Wow, I've never had one go more than 30 yards, using a smaller/weaker .243 with 100 gr. PSP Core Lokt's. You sure you hit them in the right spot?

Well any ballistic tip is suspect IMO.

Yes stubble I was using the 140grNosler Partion.The shots might have been a little long for the 7-08 to 250-350 yds were the norm.
Yes ipscshooter I was hitting them in the right spot,just behind the shoulder,just like I shoot everything else,double lung 'em

But thats like everything else,some guns work for some guys and others don't.Thats why we have so may other rounds and actions.

I think that compraison needs to be made with loads of equal sectional density and try it again....since we are playing the numbers game..

Same bullet equal sectional density..

Nosler solid base 7-08 140 gr .248 sd. Same bullet from 308 165 gr .248 sd.

From 2006 Federal catalog.

Muzzle Velocity 300 yd vel. 500 yd. vel.

7-08 2880 2306 1963
308 2670 2079 1732


Muzzle energy 300 yd. en. 500 yd. en.
7-08 2579 1654 1198
308 26131583 1099



Traj for 1.5 sight in.200yd 300yd 500 yd.
7-08zero 7.3 42.7
308zero 8.952.5



Now with an apple to apple compraison Im gonna sit back and let you guys hash it out...

Just stating an honest equal compraison....not even gonna add my opinion.




Oh yeah... I might add...all I did was post the info for whoever wants to see it...


If you dont wanna see it...feel free to skip my post and move on.... if you dont see your caliber listed here...feel free to add it.
