7mm-08

i have a Browning BLR i have not shot at game yet but thinking of using it this deer season. I do not have the time in my season of life (just yet) to reload so im looking for any recommendations for factory loads. leaning towards Supperformance 139gr SST? does anyone have any feed back on these or others?

Re: 7mm-08

My 7mm-08 likes the Federal Premiums with the 140 gr Barnes X-bullet. I have taken 2 deer with them in recent years and they both dropped within 20 yards.

Bigfoot saw me but nobody believes him!

Re: 7mm-08

I have a model 7, 7mm-08 have shot lots of deer with it using both fed premium 140gr nosler ballistic tip, and hand loads with 140gr nosler partition

Friends don't let friends buy inlines

Re: 7mm-08

If you want a lighter bullet, anything loaded with the 120gr nosler ballistic tip will kill any deer walking this earth. It's jacket is actually a bit tougher than the 140gr ballistic tip, and the 139 sst. They're also usually a bit cheaper than loads using the Barnes bullets.

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

Re: 7mm-08

While we're on the subject of 7mm-08, I need to start using lead free bullets over here (for my .308 also). Does anyone have a recommendation for a good lead free bullet?
I can get most US manufactured ammo here, so that's not an issue.

Shoot straight

Barnes TSX. They are offered in a good many factory loads. I would stay in the 130-150 grain range for deer size critters.
