45gr varget with a 120gr barnes ttsx will cover you from deer to moose. Don't think that the little 120 barnes won't penetrate a elk/moose try some.

If wounded moose and elk had a reputation for
turning on and killing the hunter, would a 120 gr 7/08 still be your cartridge choice?

Sure would be with the bullet he specified. With such high weight retention it'll work just fine.

Re: Most Accurate 7mm-08 Reload?

I have three rifles in 7-08. Two shoot 140 ballistic tips well with IMR4350. The Tikka is a one hole gun with a STIFF load (book max plus some). Easy sub MOA out to 500. Tried accubonds and had to back off a grain for accuracy and safety, but not as accurate as the BT's. The M7 is easy under an inch with anything I feed it. My encore flat out doesn't like that powder or load. It likes H4350 with 154 gr Hornady's.
