7mm-08 pet loads?

Wondering what some of your pet loads are for the 7-08 for deer? Wife's gun - Remi Mod 7. Wanting to use something like Nosler Ballistic Tips in 120gr.

    I have two pet loads for you to try.

    #1 most accurate and best on deer. 49.5 grains of H 414, CCI BR2 Primer and a 120 gr ballistic tip.

    #2 Almost as accurate in my rifle. 45.5 grains of Varget Fed 210 m and a 120 grain ballistic tip.

    I tried larger bullets and found the 120 BT @ 3000+ to be perfect for deer.

    Watch the H414 During the hot months because it is a ball powder and is heat sensitive. But during
    the winter it works great.

    Also recoil is light and should not bother your wife.

    Good luck

    I had good luck with Hornady 140 SST over IMR4350 @ 45.7 grains and loaded to book COAL specs. This was out of a Steven's 7-08 1:11 twist factory barrel. Did wonders on whitetails and hogs here in TX.
