Does the 7mm-08 measure up?
I love poring over the reloading manuals , ad naseum almost . Inoticed in the Speer #12 manual that the 7mm-08's max velocities are virtually the same as the .280's . With the lightest bullets it seems to be about 80 fps behind , 20 to 40 fps behind in the mid weights and 30 fps or so ahead of the .280 with the 175 gr . Almost seems to defy hte laws of physics given the smaller case capacity . Other manuals show the 7mm-08 behind in every case . Whats your experience ? I dont own either one , but I' thinking about that 7mm-08 !
