What is 7mm-08 ammo?

The 7mm-08 ammo is a rifle cartridge that is almost a direct copy of a wildcat cartridge developed around 1958 known as the 7mm/308. As these names would suggest, it is the .308 Winchester case necked down to accept 7 mm (.284) bullets with a small increase in case length. Of cartridges based upon the .308, it is the second most popular behind only the .243 Winchester. However, the .308 is more popular than both.

Uses Of  7mm-08 ammo

With the wide range of bullet weights available, the 7mm-08 is suitable for “varminting, game-hunting, Metallic Silhouette, and long-range shooting.” It is also suitable for plains game. For long-range target and metallic silhouette shooting, the “plastic-tipped 162-grain A-Max has proven to be very accurate with a 0.625 BC (G1). This A-Max bullet, and the 150-grain Sierra Match King, are popular with silhouette shooters.”

The 7mm-08 AMMO works in most hunting environments, including dense forest areas and large open fields. It has a flatter trajectory than the .308 Winchester and .30-06 Springfield at similar bullet weights because the slightly smaller-diameter 7mm bullet generally has a better ballistic coefficient (BC), and is thus less affected by drag and crosswind while in flight. Its trajectory is comparable to the .270 Winchester.

Why buy the 7mm08 Ammo

The 7mm-08 is a cartridge that was developed in 1978 by the Winchester company as a low-recoil rifle round that would be suitable for hunting medium-sized game animals like Elk, Moose, Caribou, and even bears. This cartridge is based on the .308 Winchester cartridge case, which is also the parent case for the 7mm Remington Magnum, the .30-’06, and the .270 Winchester. The 7mm-08 ammo was created for hunters who wanted more power than the .243 but less recoil than the .308. It’s a very versatile cartridge and performs well in a variety of rifles. It’s a great cartridge for hunting, competing in long-range rifle shooting competitions, or even self-defense, as it’s manageable and accurate enough to hit targets at all sorts of distance.
