*

I have a 7mm Mauser for about 45 years and shot it as soon as I first got it. It"s been sitting around since. Thinking of doing some reloading for it. Went in search of dies and found 7X57, then ran throughout these 7mm-08. I reloaded part 7mm mag numerous years ago. I have the brass. Simply what does 7mm-08 Remington refer to?

that"s whereby the 0-8 component comes from.the 7-08 is the near ballistic pair to the 7X57 only built on the 308"s greater pressure action.

Which is type of why ns don"t mess with it. I have a Brazilian Mauser in 7X57, and also a 7-08 is too near to it come bother.
I have had a number of 7x57"s over the years.my main one right currently is the ICL Ackley version.and the daughter shooting a Ruger flavor safety.I deserve to run the ICL up right into the 3-K range with 140gr bullets, and also get the Ruger right into the 2800 selection without also trying.using a modern-day rifle and using contemporary pressures take away the old girl up right into the 280"s range.I uncover it easiest to develop the Ackley or ICL rounds on more recent long action rifles then work the loads right into the 50-K range.

7mm Mauser is among my all time favourite loads. 7mm-08 appears to execute the same work at the front through a bit an ext kick at the back. It"s tho moderately renowned down here, yet I still prefer the Mauser load.I"m surprised that v the success the the AR communication the 7mm-08 hasn"t seen a renaissance. It seems like it would be the perfect caliber for the platform.I recognize Palmetto exit one a pair of years ago but it appeared to fade into obscurity quickly.
The 7-08 is simpler to find ammo in many places. Additionally a nice selection of bullet weights and types with it. It didn"t necessarily start out ~ above the best foot since most created it with a twist rate that was as well slow. As soon as corrected, that is perhaps among the all approximately best whitetail rounds out there. It has plenty of power, accuracy, and...light recoil. The 7 mm Mauser or 7x57 is tho as an excellent as ever.

Both usage the very same bullets, yet the 7mm-08 has much much less powder capacity, and falls under the Short action label for hi-power rifles. Conversely, the 7mm Rem. Mag. is a belted magnum cartridge inquiry a lengthy action, and obtains much greater velocities because of increased powder capacity.
