Staball is a NO-GO with the 120'sThere are many powders you could use in 7-08. The biggest challenge is finding one that is available. H4350, Varget, Reloader 15 and Staball 6.5 are all options if you are looking for a temp stable powder that would work in a 7-08.
In all honesty 120gr Hammers from a 7-08 may not be something you want to shoot at a deer more than 500 or 600 yards so temperature stability may not be as important for this gun. Unless you are shooting at longer ranges and in a wide variation of temperatures, you won’t see a large benefit from the more temperature stable powders. You may end up having good performance from CFE 223 or another less temp stable powder that you can actually find.
