    I know the 7mm08 lacks the power to be a long range hunting cartridge but I have a very accurate one and thought I'd use it for practice on targets/gongs at around 1000yds.

    Any suggestions on bullets for that distance? I dont think it's really got the capacity to push 175gns fast enough...?
