    Can you tell me about 7mm-08?

    I admit, I'd never even heard of the cartridge until my brother told me he wanted to by a rifle chambered for it. (Don't know the model; think it is a Marlin.)

    So, what's the skinny on the 7mm-08?

    It's a 308 brass casing necked down to accept a 7mm bullet. Very flat shooting, with lighter recoil than the 308. That's all I know about it. My brother has one, it's supposed to be fairly equal to a 270, but in a short action.

    Exellent cartridge that is very popular for woman and kids for deer rifles.

    Great accuracy,low recoil, gets the job done,great deer killer.

    Chambered in short action rifles, which makes them a bit smaller and lighter to carry.

    Ammo is easy to find and it seems to be more effective on deer than a .243, which is also popular for the same reasons.

    20 and some years ago we used 7mm Laser in a Remington XP-100 single shot pistol for 'Handgun Silhouette Shooting" (IHMSA).
    A 308 case shortened and necked down to 7mm; very flat trajectory, very accurate, and manageable recoil - my 115 lbs wife would shoot the 40 shots of a match with no problem.
    Did my first "40" with that pistol ...
