OK! Stop screaming! Some of you long action and magnum lovers are saying your handloads will beat the 7mm-08 loads! Not by much! Even with magnum and long action hot loads, it is still difficult to beat the 7mm-08 by one inch at 300 yards!
For example; we are trying to show is that 7mm-08 handloads will match 7mm Remington mag factory loads. If the gun story writers say the 7mm rem mag will handle moose and bears with factory ammo, the 7mm-08 will do the same with handloads. Now for the real truth. Most factory loads don't measure up to the claimed FPS. Yes! An 7mm rem mag handloaded with data from 35 years ago will smoke about any hunting rifle cartridge.
I love the 7 mag, but the 7mm-08 made me a better shooter. I normally won't take a shot beyond 400 yards. I can shoot up 3 boxes at the range with no blue shoulder. At 100 yards I can shoot the teeth off a plastic fork one at a time. I can't do this with my 7 mag. I use the 7mm-08 year around shooting varmints, pronghorns, deer, elk, and anything in season. This has made me a better shooter and hunter.
