I was just wondering what the forum members thaught of these 2 rounds.

The 7mm08 looks very respectable on paper mostly due to the HIGH BC projectiles available to handloaders. On my ballistics program the 7mm08 is on par to the 308 in many attributes and out does it in others, particularly with the Hornady 162g A-Max projectile.

What do you think?

There are two different 7mms based on the .30-06 case.

There is the German 7x64mm which came out around 1913 and then there is the US .280 Remington which came out in the 1950s.

The two rounds are slightly different and you cannot safely interchange them. But the rounds share the same loading data and deliver identical performance.
