    Anyone use the 140 gr. Nos. Partition bullet in the 7mm08? I'll be shooting it out of a Weatherby Vanguard 2 carbine {20 inch barrel}. It will be loaded in Nos. case,CCI br2 primers, and Rel. 15 or IMR 4350 powder.gun)

    I have been using the 140 Accubond in 140 for several years in three 7-08, one is an Ackley improved. They seem to shoot best at published max load, less than 1 moa. Been using RL 15 and IMR 4350.

    The standard 7-08 was 2850ish and the AI was 2950 fps.

    Sounds like a great load for your 7mm-08. I'd think both powders would be fine, I'd start with RL-15.
