The 7/08 is very impressive on big game when the right
bullet is used, Hear are my recomendations.
For deer size game 120gr blistic tips at 3000+ft/sec for
1000ft/lbs energy at 650 yrds.
Hogs and larger 140 gr Accubonds 2800+ft/sec for 1000+
ft/lbs energy at 600yrds.
Elk size game 150 bt or 160gr Accubonds (still over 1000
ft/lbs at 600yrds and 1500+ft/lbs at 350 yrds.
I prefer larger caliber,s for big game at long distances but
will not hesitate to use the 7/08 if the distance is right
for the game being hunted.
Other bullets brands of the same weight and expansion rate can
be used with good results.
So far I have limited my self to these distances with 100% success
on big game.
Have fun and good hunting
