The 7mm-08 rifle cartridge was originally developed by Remington in 1980 and is almost identical to the Wildcat Cartridge of the late 1950’s. A 7mm-08 round is a 308 Winchester case necked down to accept 7mm bullets. The 7mm-08 rifle cartridge quickly became the most popular cousin of the 308 Winchester and gained more popularity when Remington began offering 7mm-08 as a chambering option for their Model 788 and Model 700 rifles.
7mm 08 Use and Performance
7mm-08 rifle cartridges are an excellent choice for hunting a variety of game and varmints. 7mm-08 ammo is also used for silhouette and long-range shooting as well. It has a flatter trajectory than the .308 Winchester because the smaller bullet diameter is less affected by drag and crosswind. The most comparable trajectory is the .270 Winchester.
7mm 08 Rifles
The 7mm-08 is fairly popular and most major firearm manufacturers have guns for sale that are chambered for 7mm-08. Because of the performance of the cartridge in shorter barrels, manufacturers have chambered both bolt-action rifles and carbines for 70mm-08 cartridges. Browning offers it in their lever-action BLR (Browning Long Rifle) and their semi-automatic rifle, the BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle). Sako offers the 7mm-08 throughout their line of Tikka rifles, and Remington offers a version of the AR-10 that’s manufactured by DPMS.
