I can provide you 20 of them but they haven't been verified in this rifle. The one that has is crazy accurate and is a great, great deer and elk killer.

I've been shooting a 7-08 since I was 18...

I’ll share my recipe for my browning speed. yours may be different, so try at your own risk. Fed case, fed 210 primer, 47.0 gr. big game. Nosler 140 accubond, 2.280 base to ogive, shoulder set .003 back, nets me 2899-2922 FPS and shoots .4 on 10 pwr with factory 22” barrel and no trigger work. Haven’t weighed cases or sorted bullets, no primer pocket work yet. This works good enough for my hunting rifle. I’m not a paper puncher guy , or a long distance guy , just a hunter and an average rifle shot

One of these days I’ll find another Sako Hunter Edge stock like that one, without the ridiculous wait from McMillan.

If you get tired of it, send me a pm if you wouldn’t mind. If for some reason you find you don’t like the Sako Hunter pattern for the Tikka, I have a Sako Classic Edge Fill I’ll trade you for it. I prefer the Sako Hunter pattern.

Thx

Craig,

I ordered an Edge for the wife's 7-08 T-3x Superlight in MId December and received it the end of March. Just over 3 months. And to Don I'd recommend RL-15 with 120 gr bullets. Lights out with two different bullets in both the factory and the Edge stocks. .

150 eldx ain’t a bad start.

T3 stainless

140 Partition is a good one, too

Thanks Pharmseller.
That looks like something I was hoping to accomplish.

FYI the 150 load killed a 5x6 bull at 409 yards.

I was watching through the spotter. He didn’t go far.

The wonky part about Tikkas is 9 out of 10 times a load that works in one tikka will work just as well in another Tikka of same flavor. I think that it must be something to do with the machining making 2 of them clones of each other. Not something that you can bet on with other makes.

GregW is right again. I've got no fewer than 5 powders that produce way below MOA loads with 120, 140, and 150 grain bullets. The 7-08 is very easy.
