For you fellas using RL17 in the 7-08, what kind of speeds are you getting with 140-150 gr bullets?


JD338

The 22" barrel on my sons 7x57 gets 2960 with 140 ABs and 2890 with 150 PTs. A 7-08 set up about the same should do just about the same speeds as that.



that velocity is not bad at all .

I'm very happy with it. It does allow me to seat the bullets out quite a lot. Helps a little.
