It will be a compressed load, but it will certainly work for you.

Not a dumb idea, but there's a half dozen or more powders that will get you 3000fps up to 3200fps with a 120gr. Hunter is too slow burning for 7mm-08 with 120s imo...
 
Big Game.

Previous Nosler data shows 52.0 grains as max. 51.5 gr gets me 3126 and great accuracy, 22.4” barrel.
