7mm-08 Handload ?

Anybody have a good load for a Rem Model 7 with a 18" barrel. Im going to use Nosler Accubonds. I'm not sure what power to use with that short of a barrel?

Re: 7mm-08 Handload ?

I use WW 760 in my Model 7-48.0 grains (that is over in some newer manuals) with a 140 grain Accubond. I used Ballistic Tips fo years but switched to Accubonds 5 years ago.

Other powders that would be good include RL-15, RL-19, IMR 4064, and Varget,

I have a custom Mauser with Douglas 20" featherweight barrel in 7mm-08. My favorite load is Nosler 140 gr. Accubond, CCI 200 primer and 44.0 gr. IMR 4831.

Re: 7mm-08 Handload ?

I use 140 ballistic tips for years, but have a box of accubonds to try. I use a stiff load of IMR4350, Rem brass and CCI BR2 primers with the BT, and suspect, the accubonds should shoot the same/similar load just as well if not better. Plan on giving them a shot (pun intended) when I get some brass emptied.
