    Just wanted to say HELLO!! Came here to find out if anyone knows what is actually recommended bullet weight for 7mm08 with 1/10 twist doing 2800-2850 fps out of a 26 inch extra heavy barrel #8 straight contour Douglas barrel. I have used Speer 145 SPBT and 145 SPBT Match for years and always maintained 1/4 to 1/2 with the Match and 1/2 to 7/8 with the regular boat tails. I have shot it out to a 1000 yds with this setup and Match bullets using a cheater card attached to my rifle from actual shooting to that distance. I started using my rifle for deer hunting and just want to load something other than the 100 grain Hornady's I use for coyotes and load something else to keep me busy. Any recommendations from anyone with the info I have provided is much appreciated..
