RE: Your hunting dog names

I've got a French Brit named Chasseur de la Faison (Hunter of the Pheasant). His call name is Rooster (my favorite John Wayne charactor),not to mention the thing we love chasing together.

7mm-08 120gr. Nosler BT for whitetails

What are your thoughts on the 120 gr. Nosler BT in a 7-08 for whitetails inside 100 yards? The velocity will be in the 3000fps range. This is a load for a small 11 year old on his first deer hunt.

RE: 120gr. Nosler BT for deer

I guess I should've said that it's a 7mm-08.The shots he'll be getting will be 100 yards max.
