I'm intrigued by the 7mm-08. The only research I have done has been on this site for the most part. Captain O got a new one and I'd like a report.
My logic has it that maybe because it's born from a .308 case, it might have the same type of legendary accuracy....but with more speed.
Compare the recoil to another caliber or two if possible. What stock set-up would this gun shine on (config & wt). What is ideal barrel length to get most out of cartrdge?Maybe I will pick one up. right now I'm trying to decide on alot of different calibers that cover deer & elk.....maybe leaning a bit more toward deer. Cuz next year I want to get another Win Model 70 Classic in 338 as an exclusive big, big game rifle. i am considering 30-06, 270WM, 270WSM,257WM, 257R, 7mm-08, 308.....not in any particlar order or preference. I was starting to lean toward the 308 for it's legendary accuracy, short action, cheap & available ammo etc. i know it can be placed on a lightweight rifle (though I'm not looking for a lightweight rifle) though I have found light rifles not fun to shoot. Fun to carry only.
