    I am probably out of date but I saw a Norma catalog with 7-08 ammo listed (not seen it in cases as components). It is also on their web site. Thought this may be a better solution than necking up Lapua .243 for .260 shooters (like me)as well as good for 7-08 shooters.

    Look under hunting ammo for the 7-08 stuff.

    Got the Norma catalog today, 7-08 is listed as being available as component cases.

    It was just a thought if it would avoid the donut better than laping up .243 Lapua.

    May not be as good as .308 match cases.
