Cartridge          : 7 mm-08 Rem.
Bullet             : .284, 120, Nosler BalTip 28120
Useable Case Capaci: 49.378 grain H2O = 3.206 cm³
Cartridge O.A.L. L6: 2.800 inch = 71.12 mm
Barrel Length      : 24.0 inch = 609.6 mm

Predicted Data for Indicated Charges of the Following Powders.
Matching Maximum Pressure: 59000 psi, or 406 MPa
or a maximum loading ratio or filling of 110 %
These calculations refer to your specified settings in QuickLOAD 'Cartridge Dimensions' window.
C A U T I O N : any load listed can result in a powder charge that falls below minimum suggested
loads or exceeds maximum suggested loads as presented in current handloading manuals. Understand
that all of the listed powders can be unsuitable for the given combination of cartridge, bullet
and gun. Actual load order can vary, depending upon lot-to-lot powder and component variations.

My loads, for each bullet weight listed, based on Nosler’s book max, are all !DANGEROUS LOAD - DO NOT USE!

R-P brass, WLRM primer, if it makes any difference.

That’s funny.
 
I also have not been a huge fan of Varget in my 7mm-08...or anything really. I stumbled across a decent load with A2495, 120gr....not a screamer but I was punishing a rock at 250 yards with it.
 
I run Varget right now in my 7-08 with 140 gr Sierra Game King bullets. Ive also got a real good load with 150 gr Nosler BT's and Big Game powder.

That's real close to what I've used. 41.5 with the 139 SST. Worked excellent in a full length M700, and as good as anything else I tried in a M700 mountain rifle, and put 5 shots under 3/4" first test in a Rem 788. Not a bad record I'd say. It may not be the best, but it's showed me it's close on 3 in a row.

Ive also had good success with the 139gr SST and Varget. Matter of fact my plans are to "work" on that load in the coming weeks.
 
I am about to build a 7mm08. A 243 is being sacrificed, don’t need two of them. Actually don’t need a 7mm08 either but am really looking forward to playing with it. I have a few hundred 139SST’s and was tossing up between Varget and H4350
 
RL17 is hard to beat in the 7mm-08 using 140 class bullets , fast and accurate . 24"bbl , 140 Berger VLD-h , 3080 FPS .5 MOA out to 1000 yards . that's the farthest I've shot

That's good stuff Jim. Excellent results no doubt! Quite impressive on both speed and accuracy.

The only problem I have with what you're saying is where a person could find a reasonable amount of RL17 right now and at what cost. For whatever reason the RL powders have been rare as hens teeth in my local haunts, and what is found at times is ridiculously high in price comparatively. Hopefully the day is coming where we can once again pursue our hobby unrestricted in whatever direction we wish to try. One can at least hope.
