139 grain Hornady BTSP if your reloading.

Re: bullet for 7mm08

I was reloading the 140 grain hornady in 7mm mag. The book siad that I should be getting 3000 fps but when I got a chronograph I found that I was only getting 2800 something. The thing is that I had really good success with that bullet at that velocity. Seeing that you could get that speed with a 7mm08 I would try the above posters recommendation and try the 140 grain hornady. Hey deer are easy to kill even a 120 or a 130 should work fine.

I shoot Federal Premium 140gr Nosler Partitions which shoot very well from my gun. However, they have become rather hard to find lately.

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Re: bullet for 7mm08

I have had great luck with 120gr B-Tips. took a large mature male black bear with the 139ssttaken lots of deer with the 140 b-tip until I found out how well the 120's worked.

It may be a poor choice of words but I am smart enough to understand what you meant.

Re: bullet for 7mm08

Gonna use Hornady 139SST this year. Been working up loads all summer, and found middle panel loads the best so far. I think my 16.5 inch barrel on my compact is very finicky getting bullet stabilized.

Re: bullet for 7mm08

120 grain bullets are perfect out of the 7mm-08, I've been using ballistic tips the past few years, though I want to try Barnes TTSX's. The 120 grain Ballistic Tips actually have a thicker jacket on them than other hunting weight BT's, so they are perfect for deer.

If I had to pick one hunting load, it'd be 43-44 grain of RL15 and a 120 grain TTSX. Otherwise I'd probably go with RL19 and a 140 grain Accubond or Partition.

I like the 140 gr. Nosler Accubonds and the 140 gr. Partition in my 7mm-08 with 43 grs. H4350.
