A former wildcat cartridge commecialized by Remington in 1980, 7mm-08 ammo is based on a necked down .308 Winchester case. It fires a 140-150 grain .284 bullet at a muzzle velocity of between 2,600-2,900 feet per second. Notable advantages of this caliber include below-average recoil, flat trajectories, and sufficient power to take any small or medium sized game.
Many manufacturers produce hunting loads for the 7mm-08 including Remington, Winchester, Nosler, Federal, and Hornady. Look at our in-stock line-up for sale on this page.
A wide variety of rifles can be obtained in this caliber including the Remington 700, Browning BLR, Kimber 84, and even several variants of the AR-10.

Powerful calibers deserve high-level attention and projectile design, and that's exactly what Hornady's American Whitetail provides. The American Whitetail brand is intended to give hunters an incredible tool for deer hunting with an affordable price to match. As such, each of these 7mm-08 Remington cartridges is built using a reloadable brass casing with a non-corrosive Boxer primer seated properly at its base. The primer sparks clean-burning powder that was specifically chosen to provide optimal pressure and muzzle velocity for this load. At the top of cartridge is the key feature of the round; Hornady's InterLock soft point projectile.
The InterLock projectile weighs in at 139 grains which is fairly light for the caliber and provides flat-shooting, high-velocity characteristics. While the majority of the lead bullet is secured within a strong copper jacket, the bullet's tip is left bare for excellent expansion within a game animal during entry. A combined effort between the bullet's toothed cannelure and internally located InterLock ring keep the copper jacket locked to the lead core in order to prevent separation. This ensures that the bullet penetrates deeply with no loss in cavitating momentum for hard-hitting, antler-mounting performance. Hornady has been around since 1949 and is one of the leading manufacturers in the United States when it comes to innovative bullet design.

Hornady, an American company with almost seven decades of manufacturing experience, introduced their Custom Lite line to give a low-recoil ammo option to hunters that are young, disabled, or just don't want to put up with unnecessary shoulder pain. The Custom Lite line also reduces muzzle blast for increased shooting comfort without compromising on final terminal ballistics. That means that these 7mm-08 Remington rounds can still be expected to do quite a number on small bears, moose, and other big game animals. Each cartridge utilizes a 120-grain Super Shock Tip (SST) round which is equipped with a hollow nose cavity covered by a plastic windshield.
The SST's ballistic tip, boat tail rear, and precisely angled ogive allow the bullet to glide through the air with very little drag for excellent accuracy at long distances. Upon impact with a target, the tip is driven back into the bullet's body, initiating rapid expansion and facilitating effective energy transfer to the vital organs, yielding a quick and painless stop. Jacket separation is prevented by the use of a toothed cannelure at the bullet's major diameter and a low-mounted InterLock ring on the inside the bullet. Both features ensure that the round will penetrate to an appropriate depth without losing its momentum prematurely.

Make every shot count on your next big game hunt with these 7mm-08 Remington rounds from Winchester. Each of these cartridges utilizes a 140-grain projectile, a staple weight of this caliber, from Winchester's Power-Point design. Power-Point bullets have soft point noses that surrounded by deep skiving in the surface of their copper jackets; this construction promotes wide, dynamic expansion upon impact with a deer, beer, or large hog for maximum organ and tissue damage. A knurled cannelure prevents the bullet from over-expanding and underpenetrating, a problem which could otherwise leave game bleeding and running away.
Winchester mounts the soft-point projectile within a reloadable brass casing that can be cleaned and rearmed after firing. Each casing carries a load of clean-burning propellant from Winchester's own stocks which is ignited by Winchester's own non-caustic Boxer primer. Winchester has manufacturing ammunition for over 150 years and is responsible for some of the world's most popular calibers. Their Super-X line is considered affordble, effective, and reliable in a wide range of firearms.

Winchester's Deer Season XP (eXtreme Point) loads are a step up from their standard hunting options that are intended to put venison in the freezer and mount big racks over the fireplace. Each of these 7mm-08 Remington rounds is built from the ground up using Winchester's own components which include clean-igniting Boxer primers, low-residue propellant grains, and reloadable brass casings. Completing the cartridge is a 140-grain XP projectile which comprises a alloy lead core, tapered copper jacket, and a wide-mouth cavity covered by a large-diameter ballistic cone.
The large ballistic tip helps maintain aerodynamic integrity for in-flight stability and final accuracy but also causes the projectile to expand rapidly when it enters a large white-tail or big hog. This expansion is halted by the round's grooved cannelure in order to ensure that the bullet punches deep into the vital areas before coming to a stop and delivering an effective blow. Winchester is a venerable American company that has been in business since 1866 and uses their vast knowledge and experience to give hunters premium performance at a fair price.
