Might want to try IMR 3031, or 4064. Both should get you close to 3000 fps. I use the 140 Pro Hunter in my 700 Ti, -08. Excellent results. Have you used the 120 on deer, if so, results?

I'm running Varget with 120 Bal-Tip. IMR-4064 or IMR-4895 is comparable. Rifle is an A-bolt micro.

Re: 7mm08 & Sierra120 gr. bullet

I'd go to the nos b-tip with the 7-08 and 120's. If you want sierra, use the 140 pro hunter. The 120 pro hunter will splash if you try to put one through the shoulder even on a white tail. Been there, done that. Irked enough that I traded the rifle. 760/h414, varget, or rl15 are the best powders for the 7-08 with these bullets. 4895, 4320, and 4064 work too.

have not tried 120's on deer yet, just thinking about 2900 fps with 120 gr Sierra bullet should be good deer combo.

As posted I would use Varget or another powder right in that ball park, +/- a bit. Of course it also depends on what you have on hand.
