Re: loads for 7mm-08

What kind of loads are you looking for (bullet type,weight,type of target)? What reloading manuals do you have?

Re: loads for 7mm-08

I just tried a load that JE custom gave me and it shot lights out. 120gr ballistic tip with 49.5 H414 powder! H414 seems to be the key ingredient in alot of 7mm08's around here!

great performance with H414 but i think its very temperature sensative. Varget and Imr 4350 work well.

Can you define "temperature sensitive"? H414 is one of the few powders I can find locally and I was going to use it for 243 win.

The same ingredients for me. Running a bit more H-414, but moly plated.

22 1/2" Rock spits 'em out at 3160.
