    Hi Guys,
    Looking at building a mid rang varminter / F Class rifle in 7mm08AI & shoot either the 162gr Amax or 168gr VLD's. Using a Barnard P action & 33" barrel with 1-9" twist - so I can really stretch it legs. Why the 7-08Ai - well I'm getting phenominal performance from a plain 7mm08 with the Amax seeing 2,750fps with the 162gr Amax & 2,600fps with 180gr VLD from a 24" barrel. I'm curious to see how many off you are 7-08AI users & any tips in regards to best powders, components etc.

    I shoot a myself, but am using 120 noslers at the moment, but plan on seeing what itll do with them heavier bullets maybe even some 180's.
    im around 3400fps with the 120's.
