    Great read! I should get my wife a 7mm-08. She is just getting in to hunting but wants to try everything with a bow first.

    Seen a lot of kids shoot elk with 140gr ABs from a 7/08. My wife shot one for years before stealing my 270wsm.

    Really the only problem with it being underrated is there is less ammo selection/availability.

    My wife's 7mm-08 has been fired 3 times at 3 animals. One dead deer, one dead bear, and one dead elk.

    I jumped the gun and bought a case of 140 ABs to load for a 7mag and the rifle just wouldn't shoot them how I wanted....so then loaded some for my wife's 7/08 and decided to grab me a 7/08 and I'm set on ammo for those for a while.

    Thats the exact same bullet we've been shooting in my nieces 7-08 for a few years now!

    I have killed antelope and mulies with the 140 AB and the 140 TTSX. Both worked great. I am going to try to work up a load for the 168 Berger CH around 2550 fps MV, and that would be a sweet elk round as well.

    I posted this back in feb.

    I have used the 7-08 for quit some time now and have harvested a range of critters with it. I reload for mine so i can fine tune them to get the most accuracy I can. The best all around bullet for under 300 yards I found is the 145 gr speer GS. The longer distances I found that the 145gr Speer BT works great. I also have harvested game closer with BT and worked just fine.

    I'll give my facts & findings on bullets & their results on game for the 7-08

    130 Barnes TSX antelope 407 yards lung placement; penciled through & the goat went over 400 yards before expiring
    145 gr speer GS I have havested 3 mule deer from 184 yards to 318 yards every bullet a pass through the deer dieing within 25 yards
    145 gr speer GS Medium size bull moose 35 yards shot head on died within 10 ft
    160 sierra BT Big bull moose 120 yards or so sot through the rib cage at 85 paces went 100 yards or so Bullet shed darn near everything
    160 speer mag tip killed a 7'-2" square black bear over bait @ 31 yards went through both shoulders, exited. He died right there(DRT)
    150 swift scirocco killed a 7' grizzly @ 20feet he spun around & i shot him again because he was so close, DRT
    150 swift scirocco my coyete load doesn't blow the hide up
    140 gr berger VLD hunting shot an 370" bull elk at 210 yards. Complete pass through but that joker ran 300 yards or so. Quatering to me shot went the the top of the shoulder blade, top of heart, both lungs & out the other side. He pumped out alot of blood before he died.
    140 gr berger VLD elk @ 398 yards. The bull was hit on the point of the shoulder blade and the bullet blew up. It did break his shoulder but never passed through. The second shot was in the rib cage and found the bullet in the off side lung with no lead core.
    145 gr speer BT caribou 178 yards DRT quatering away shot found bullet against off side shoulder blade
    145 gr speer BT caribou 367 lung shot bullet found under hide off side went 30' or so
    most accurate bullets for me berger VLD and the speer BT
    I loaded some nosler Accubonds but couldn't get the accuracy I was looking for.

    from left to right on recovered bullets

    elk VLD 140, 160 sierra BT moose, 145 speer GS moose, 145 speerBT caribou 367yards, 145 speer BT caribou 178 yards
