@7stw Have you by any chance tried H-100V in your 7/08.(or anyone else for that matter) I have a lb of this stuff that I was doing nothing with and noticed on the Hogdon burn rate chart that it should be a good powder for this cartridge. Just around the StaBall rate and slightly slower than 760. I done a crude pressure ladder to determine pressure and found that 44grs with a 175 gr bullet seemed to be a max in my rifle. Later this spring I will test it for velocity and accuracy. According to a program I was working with is seems this powder would be the cat's meow concerning barrel life. It's a powder we don't here much about.
