Nice the 20 in barrel should make it really handy.

I'm a fan of the 7mm-08, very handy caliber.

Let us know how it goes.

Will do.

I have never owned one, I have a 308, 243 and 22-250 but have never owned a 708

Going to start with the 120 TTSX load.

We will be hunting supressed this season the most with a 6.8 and 308 though.

My 7-08. It shoots pretty good. Someday, it will be trued and blue-printed. Not real sure if I going to keep it that caliber or go with 6 or 6.5mm caliber...

If it is tourist season, why can't we shoot them?

Nice looker... I got a 7mm-08 for my daughter to hunt with, but shortly after that she decided she did not want to hunt.  I sold it, simply because I did not need it... It was a good shooter, though.  With 120gr ammo she was shooting 1/2MOA regularly.  She doesn't shoot at all, now.

I bought this rifle online but unable to pu at gun store, been delayed (put on hold).... Very strange since Ive bought a bunch of guns here in Oregon since I was a kid,,,,,just more political crap coming on gun laws, rules.
Anyway it ought to be a shooter, I just stole this picture online but its a Savage model 12 6.5 Creedmoor.
"FYI I revised the picture, first pic was not accurate"
I bought a Sightron III 6x24x50 moa2 scope for it as well.

I like that Billy! Is that a mcmillian stock? Who made that rifle?


Posted By: billyburl2

It is a factory Remington 700, with a Mcmillian A-5. I bought the rifle used local, and the stock over on the Hide, also used. The scope is the new 3-15 SS.

I don't know if I've ever seen a 7mm-08 that wouldn't shoot. I use heavier stuff in mine. 168 gr VLD and R15. Vanguards, I believe, are made by Howa. Those may be the best bolt actions you can get in that price range.

My 7-08 just became very un-happy, since I heard the rumor that Hornady is suspending manufacture of the 162's! I am going to call them on Monday to confirm.

The AMAX 162? Billy? Do you use it for target, hunting or both.. If your huntin with it, how is that bullet working for you in the 708?

I have not had a chance to use it on game. I did not draw any tags this year. I believe that shot placement kills animals, not "super bullets". I have seen many 900 lbs steers lose their life to a well placed 22LR...

I think the rifle is clearly capacble of shooting even better.
For my rifle I won't stop until it is shooting one hole groups.
But he won't be shooting past 250 it is good enough to go hunt with.
