Re: 7mm08 question about Hornady Lite Magnum Factory Ammo

Pete; What caliber are you shooting these 139's in? I assume it is 7mm, but which 7mm? And is that model 7 Rem. still with factory barrel? If so, you got a good one!! Also do you think these "Lite Magnums" are hard on the barrel life? Thanks

Re: 7mm08 question about Hornady Lite Magnum Factory Ammo

I got 4500 rounds of the 180gr BTSP Hornday LM through the first barrel in my 06 before the accuracy went (plus maybe 150 rounds of other stuff in my search for the best load). The rifle started out as a remmy 700 custom shop mountain rifle KS. not sure what barrel was on it but i have been told by Remington it was a douglas.Then came a Heym, (that was so superbly accurate, but unfortunately chrom moly, and the dreaded Scottish weather put paid to that before i could shoot it out. I'm on a stainless Border barrel at the mo. When you consider the 30-06 with the light mag loads is pushing almost standard 300wm velocity, youd expect a bit more barrel wear than with standard 6 loads, i figure i did well to get as many as i did.
S&B are available every where, you just have to know who to ask.
