Toasty - welcome to LRH.com and the addiction that is long range hunting and shooting.
Great shooting and nice rig. When you have it rebarrelled you will be starting over on load development - have fun with that. Hopefully you ordered a longer and fatter barrel. That should increase both velocity and accuracy. In turn that gives you longer range capabilities.
To your question on using a 7-08 at 700-1000 yard shots on elk - don't do it. In order to shoot 1k at elk, you need to be in the 300RUM class of cartridge.
I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!
