7mm-08 ammo, This is the number one of all time due to it usage and good rating by the world hunters, these give this rifle the power to seat on the top of all rifle of all time in the world record.
There is something special about the 7mm-08 Remington, and I feel it might be the most efficient of the .308 Winchester family. I never really understood the name; the .30-06 family hangs the “ought-six” surname on many of the offspring, as most other cartridges use the parent’s full name, as in the .22-250 Remington or 6.5-284 Norma. Despite the silly name—I feel it should have been the 7mm-308 Remington—the cartridge is a fantastic design, being nothing more than the .308 Winchester necked down to hold 7mm bullets.
The cases share the same 0.473-inch case head diameter, 20-degree shoulder and 1.560-inch datum line, though the 7mm-08 Remington case is 2.035 inches long, compared to the .308’s 2.015-inch length. Where the .308 Winchester uses a cartridge overall length of 2.810 inches, the 7mm-08 Remington cartridge measures 2.800 inches.
Invariably, any discussion of the 7mm-08 leads to the comparison with the 7x57mm Mauser, and perhaps rightfully so. When using barrels of equal length, the velocity differences between the 7mm-08 and 7×57 are negligible, with the 7-08 having a slight advantage. Both can take full advantage of the range of 7mm bullets, the shorter 7mm-08 will run at higher pressures. I like the fact that the 7mm-08 can be chambered in a light rifle, with a 22-inch barrel, and still wring respectable velocities from the cartridge. Undoubtedly the 7×57 has the pedigree, having been taken on incredible adventures in the hands of both W.D.M. ‘Karamoja’ Bell in Africa and Col. Jim Corbett in India (their .275 Rigbys were in every way just a renamed 7×57 Mauser) but I’d wager that if either of those gentlemen were around in 1980 to see the 7mm-08, they’d have been a fan.
