I recently just purchased the gun is a sako with a luepold scope. I honestly do not know much about the caliber. I have heard it is a great deer round. Does anyone hunt with one? And is there more knock down power then say the 30/30? Any input will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the replys guys. I have not yet shot the gun but I have been researching since last night and see that it is more then powerful enough for whitetail. I also so were guys use them for elk with heavy loads of course.
I own a 7mm-o8 Remington MT RIFLE.One great caliber.great on deer.Great knock down power and very accurate.I have a SWAROVSKI 3x9 on top of it..Great shooter.Nothing bad to say about this gun.I think you made a great investment.GOOD LUCK.
I lost a large buck to the 7mm-08...I never lost a buck with my 7mm magnum..I am trying lighter bullets at higher velocities trying to mirror the results of the 7mm magnum..I am getting 3000 FPS from a 20 inch barrel and the barnes 120 grain TTSX...
I shot a big bull elk a few years ago with mine, uses 140gr barnes XLC, dropped the bull where it stood, bullet went through both shoulders, with the proper bullet, I would hesitate to take it on a moose hunt.
