Default 7mm-08 factory ammo...

Does anyone shoot 7-08 and if so, what are you using out of the box? I don't have the time or room to reload/handload. I've been eyeing up the Federal Vital Shok Barnes TSX's and no one in WI carries them. My shots are all within 90 yards, so ballistic tips are literally pointless, as they open too late.

If you use 7-08, let me know what you're using for whitetails, more than likelybetween 139 and 160 grain, and why you use what you do...even if you handload.

I shoot factory Winchester supremes, ballistic tips and fail safes when I could get them. I stocked up a few years ago so I've been depletingg my stock over the years. No problems so far, its a shooting gun.
