7mm-08 Remington is a rifle cartridge that is almost a direct copy of a wildcat cartridge developed around 1958 known as the 7mm/308. As these names would suggest, it is the .308 Winchester case necked down to accept 7 mm bullets with a small increase in case length.
7mm-08 Remington is a rifle cartridge that is almost a direct copy of a wildcat cartridge developed around 1958 known as the 7mm/308. As these names would suggest, it is the
.308 Winchester case necked down to accept 7 mm (.284) bullets with a small increase in case length.Of cartridges based upon the .308, it is the second most popular behind only the .243 Winchester. However, the .
308 is more popular than both. In 1980, the Remington Arms company popularized the cartridge by applying its own name and offering it as a chambering for their Model 788 and Model 700 rifles, along with a limited-run series within their Model 7600 pump-action rifles during the early 2000s
The popularity of the cartridge means there is a fairly wide selection of factory loads, making it a choice even for those who do not handload. Bullets weighing from 100 to 195 grains are available
Bullets in the 130-150 grain range will suit most hunting applications while long range shooters will opt for the heavier bullets to take advantage of their higher ballistic coefficients
Depending on construction, bullets of 154 to 195gr can also be used in loads suitable for medium and larger game or target purposes. Medium burning rifle powders usually work best in the 7mm-08.
With the wide range of bullet weights available, the 7mm-08 is suitable for “varminting, game-hunting, Metallic Silhouette, and long-range shooting.” It is also suitable for plains game.” For long-range target and metallic silhouette shooting, the “plastic-tipped 162-grain A-Max has proven to be very accurate with a 0.625 BC (G1)
This A-Max bullet, and the 150-grain Sierra Match King, are popular with silhouette shooters.”
The 7mm-08 Remington works in most hunting environments, including dense forest areas and large open fields. It has a flatter trajectory than the .308 Winchester and .30-06 Springfield at similar bullet weights because the slightly smaller-diameter 7mm bullet generally has a better ballistic coefficient (BC), and is thus less affected by drag and crosswind while in flight. Its trajectory is comparable to the .270 Winchester.
Its recoil is a bit more than a .243 Win. and less than most loads in a .308 Win. This mild recoil makes it suitable for youth and adults who are new shooters; however, the cartridge serves experienced shooters and hunters equally well.
Howard Brant of Shooting Industry magazine wrote: “the 7mm-08 is a real sleeper as far as the hunting field is concerned. It is a grand cartridge which packs more than sufficient wallop to efficiently down all medium-sized big-game animals found in North America and elsewhere.”
