Hey Gang,

Happy New Year!

Anyone reloading for the 7-08?  If so what are your favorite powders for 120 grain bullets? What about for 140's?

Also, how are the terminal ballistics for the 120 Nosler Ballistic Tip on deer and pigs?  Thanks!

Yep.  Varget and RL15 should work great.

H-4895 worked great for me with both 120's and 140's.

Another one to consider is Ramshot Big Game. Tried it in the 7-08 for the first time this past year and wondered why I hadn't before. Simply outstanding, with fine accuracy and top velocities. The burn rate is a little faster than IMR4350, but it's a very dense ball powder so doesn't have the bulk problems of 4350. It also burns very cleanly so doesn't gunk up the bore like older ball powders.
