7mm08 Striker

I now have a 7mm08 take off barrel coming. I have a couple of questions. What's a good powder and bullet combo for long range coyotes if I cut the barrel at 16.5" ? As always any suggestions are wanted. Thank you in advance!

Had a short barreled Savage with a 1/9,5 twist that was a deer getter to 600 yards with 120 grain BT and H414 powder.....I still regret selling it!

Re: 7mm08 Striker

Thanks guys, MackV I have several guns I sold and wish I hadn't. Now to replace.it would cost so much more.

Lefty sorry you missed out on your dads Striker.
I've been looking at some of the ballistics for 15" barrels, and I think the 16.5" will work good with this cartridge. May even go 17". We'll see when it gets here amd when it's time to cut it.
Now I am going to have to get some dies for it. It just never ends! Thank God!!

Re: 7mm08 Striker

you know what twist it is? savage offered 2. 9.5 and 11-11.5 I think it was. hopefully it is the 9.5 as it will work with a heavier bullet. Im a big fan of the .284 diameter bullets. Ive had good luck with 120 b-tips in my encore
