I just received new barrel for my rem 700 7mm-08. Is 22" 1 in 8 mcgowen I want to try the 180 eldm in. I was wondering if someone could run quickload to give me idea on what powders might give most velocity.

Thank you guys!!!

Don't know why anyone would go with a 180 in that cartridge but Hodgdon has a load for it. Most others stop at 175. Also better check your twist rate with that bullet.

Because it cuts wind like a knife! Not going to be flat, but if you are dialing then who cares. Need a 1 in 8 twist though for sure. My 7mm-08 is a 9.5" twist so a 162 is the heaviest I could go. I shoot the 180s in my 7mm rem mag...8 twist.

Starting at 2500 fps is only like 2.5 moa more drop at 1000. Benefits in wind are worth it

I get what he’s doing.
Me too. Lot's of us have loaded the 7m-08 for a lot of years....so kinda "ain't our first rodeo" been there done that.

The 175-180's have their pros for sure but you have to have the right twist, and barrel length. The 180 takes up a lot of "space in the case" so like the 284 Win the 7mm-08 would handle the 180's better on a long action. Just sayin.

Thank you will probably load out to 2.950 though. Should help.

Is your barrel throated for a 2.950" oal with the 180gr Eld-M? You may not be able to go that long otherwise. Another .150" of powder space could change that list a bit though. I'd say those are basically starting loads as well. I doubt you will see any pressure signs until you get above 60,000psi...
