One of my most accurate rifles is a 22'' barrel 7/08 using 49.5 grains of H414 and a CCI Br2
primer behind a 120 grain ballistic tip.( .053 5 shots @ 100 yards ). It also likes 45.5 grains
I have been successful out to 550 yards on deer and 800+ on hogs.
I also have a 7/08x40 that likes H414 and Varget with the 140 grain Bullets.
The downside to Ball powders is there intolerance to heat. My load for the 7/08 goes from
3010 ft/sec in the winter to 3155 ft/sec in the 100o summer temperatures.
