One other advantage to the 7 mm-08 and other mild 7 mm rounds is they do well with the standard cup and core bullets. They work well and wont come apart at 08 velocities, which brings down the cost of shooting. Bullet muzzle velocity: 3,000 Feet Per Second. Bullet muzzle energy: 2,397 Foot Pounds.

Remington has managed recoil loads in 7mm-08 which use a 140 gr bullet.

Anyone know how to check the accuracy of a chronograph? The 7mm-08 provides an excellent hunting cartridge for medium to large game. It was intended to provide lighter recoil while maintaining heavy enough bullet weight and velocity to effectively reach out and kill game efficiently. 7mm-08 Remington. Powder. 110-grain TTSX FB.

Velocity Product .Price 130 Gr Trophy Gold Berger Hunting VLD HP BT, per 203238 fps .999-825 . 43.99 7mm-08Available with either a hollow point or polymer tip, this flat based bullet design delivers high velocities and extreme terminal performance on varmints at long ranges. The 7mm-08 Remington is simply the .308 Winchester cartridge necked-down to handle .284 inch diameter bullets.This means that the 7mm-08 will generally drive bullets of any particular weight at somewhat higher velocity than will a 7x57. Introduction Berger currently offers two bullets in 7mm: 168 grain and 180 grain VLDs. The. versatility of these two bullets extends from big game hunting to long range benchrest.velocity, bullet weight, etc resulted in remarkable precision, chances are, the twist rate. was a small issue to it. The first step in load development for my new 7mm Remington Magnum (with a 27 barrel) was to get a basic idea for the real-world muzzle velocities I could expect out of a few different high quality, very low drag bullets At muzzle velocity, the 12.7mm M8 API will penetrate 25mm of steel. However, like all rifle and machine-gun bullets, the M8 API is a relatively light projectile (40 g). Therefore, it loses its energy fairly rapidly. PRT7M08RA. 140. Nosler Partition. 9 1/2. 24".

The gun forum experts all said--That aint nearly enough velocity. Get yourself a 7x30 Waters or a 7- 08 barrel!An expansion comparison test would show me which of my 7mm bullets would expand the best at 10" barrel velocities. Whether a bullets terminal velocity is potentially lethal depends on a number of factors. If I recall, .30 rifle bullets have shown a terminal velocity of about 300 fpsBen says: June 20, 2014 at 11:08 am. I live in Barcelona and your comment about people firing guns to celebrate Bara is nonsense! The 7mm-08 Rem shoots a 7mm bullet - .284 - the same as a 7mm Remington Magnum.Disadvantages: Hard to get the velocity out of a .284 bullet without moderate recoil. Simply reducing the bullet weight but leaving velocity high can still leave recoil high. By reducing the bullet weight and velocity, recoil is lighter at the expense of down range energy loss.We have not chronographed the 7mm-08 yet but expect a similar loss. Optimum performance velocity: Minimum: 1800 fps (549 mps) Maximum: Unlimited. CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL7mm 140 Grain Partition Bullet Part 16325 Spitzer Point. The 7mm-08 Remington is a rifle cartridge that is almost a direct copy of a wildcat cartridge developed around 1958 known as the 7mm/308. As these names would suggest, it is the .308 Winchester case necked down to accept 7 mm (.284) bullets with a small increase in case length. The 7 mm-08 Rem. offers nothing special to write home about in the way of bullet speed. Its on par with the 7x57 mm Mauser and .280 Rem but its bullet velocity falls some 300 fps short compared to various 7 mm magnum cartridges. Various 140-grain bullets provide the best balance of velocity and weight in the 7 mm-08 Rem. These bullets reloading for 7mm 08 Reloading the 7 mm-08 So at the same bullet velocity, the 9" twist is faster (spins the bullet faster) than the 16" twist. Consequently, as the chart reflects in the .224 CF section, the 9" twist is necessary for stabilizing heavier bullet weights. Calibres from 5 mm to 7 mm were studied and finally the 6 mm bore was selected, leading to the 6 mm APX 1893 (Figure 3), firing a 8.5 g FMJ round-nose bullet (a. 3/106. scaled down 8 mm Mle 1886 M bullet) at a velocity (V25) of 731 m/s when loaded with 2.65 g of BF powder (cartridge weight of 3. I plan on cutting off the chamber and turning the remainder of the barrel down to a sporter contour and chambering it in 7mm-08.Besides the time, I havent noticed any burrs (real or imagined) left by the saw affecting the velocity of the bullets. 7mm-08 Remington.ELD-X and ELD Match bullets are measured at 800 yards with Doppler radar. While 200 yard BCs are higher, 800 yard values are better for shooting at distance. The caliber is 7mm-08 in a Remington model Seven rifle.I test it against the Hornady American Whitetail load with a 139 grain Interlock bullet. I am shooting 3 rounds each at 100 yards for velocity and accuracy. 7mm-08 bullet weights. Discussion in Reloading started by tomatz, Feb 17, 2018.7/08 cases dont hold a lot of powder and when using the heavy 7mm bullets you give up a lot of velocity and this reduces the bullet effectiveness at longer distances on game. 7 mm 08 REMINGTON.This propellant gives excellent velocities for the pressures generated and with less flash than other comparable powders.It is the best with heavier bullets in most calibres. Our slowest handgun propellant. But when you compare heavy bullets, grain for grain, the 7mm-08 offers better ballistics. In other words a 168-grainer fired from a 7mm-08Using identical powders and the same bullets, Steven Ikeda has found that his 7mm SAUM can match 7mm WSM book load velocities with about 7 less powder. Note also, that the lowest data point is a jacketed hollow point bullet fired at an extremely low velocity from a .38 Special that does not deform and (predictably) behaves like a hard cast flat-nose bullet.Depth of Penetration. Retained Weight. 7mm-08 Remington. 120 gr GS Custom HV. Some grumpy, experienced shooters still whine about the 7mm-08 not having as much powder capacity as the 757, and bullets needing to be seated below the neck, robbing the little case of a little more powder room. But modern powders easily allow the 7mm-08 to duplicate 757 velocities 3N38. This specially designed powder for competitive handgun shooting is recommended for high velocity loads of 9 mm Luger and .40 SW with moderate bullet weight.7 mm-08 Remington. The 7mm08 shoots flatter and hits harder with larger grain bullets and a larger caliber.At 1000 I would assume the 6.5 is boosting more velocity that the 7mm-8 no matter how the charts print it out. 7mm-08 with 139gr SST.

I got the 139gr bullets from an estate sale believing I was buying handloaded 30/30. Heavy duty. Serious business for big game. A worthwhile investment: The strong jacket construction of the TOG controlled-expansion bullet results in mushrooming without releasing mass.200. 300. Velocity. The 7mm-08, like the 308, generally performs well with a short barrel. But I think what he was getting at is to run the heavier pills in a 7- 08, youll want a bit more barrel to get a complete burn and push them to optimal velocity. Ballistic performance. Bullet weight/type. Velocity. Energy. Script error Nosler Partition.The flip side of this is that "when you compare heavy bullets, grain for grain, the 7mm-08 offers better ballistics. In handguns, the 175 grain 1940 bullet is recommended for hunting only in cartridges like the 7mm-08 Remington in the Remington XP-100 single-shot handgun, which can push this bullet at a muzzle velocity of 2300 fps. Three powders produced the highest velocity with 120-grain bullets in Johns 7mm-08 Remington. Accuracy was good, especially with W-760. Various handloading manuals list some impressive velocities for 120-grain bullets fired from the 7mm-08. What would be your bullet selection for elk for a 24 inch barrel 7mm08?Standard cup and core will obviously kill an elk as well, but by going to a more engineered bullet I can go down a bit in weight and gain some velocity.
[Archive] Best bullet for the 7mm-08? Deer Hunting.Velocity plays a big part in bullet expansion and weight retention. If you will never shoot a deer past 200 yards then the added velocity of the Superformance is unnecessary and not preferred at closer range. If youd wanted a 7mm-08, youd have bought one, right?Like you, I used a 7MM Mag to get magnum velocities with 3100 fps with a 160 grain bullet. If I wanted .280 velocities I would have bought a .280. The 195gr EOL bullet has the highest ballistic performance of any 7mm bullet currently in existence, and is truly the first of its kind for a number of reasons.[?]Variance in BC This table shows you how the BC of your bullet changes with velocity as your bullet flies downrange.
