7mm08 akley improved
Has anybody used this for sheep hunting and if so how do you like it?
What kind of velocity are you getting
The reason I'm asking is I have a 7mm08, but I feel the cartridge could use a little help ( maybe I need the help ) I would like to get a light weight rifle for packing up the mountains and don't want a magnum cartridge--I don't do recoil really well
Maybe a different caliber???
Any thoughts or ideas are all welcome
Could use some help in what regard?
The 7-08 is a great sheep round, fits in a mid action, and very accurate. 120-140 grain bullets are about right. A nosler 120 loaded up to max with IMR 4350 is a nice flat shooting combo.
Hey Sako1, I was thinking about a little bit extra velocity for that one time that I might need to reach out a bit further,say 350 or more yds on that once in a life time ram or goat.
Was just curios to know if the Ackley was worth it or not.
Don't get me wrong I do like that 7-08, taken Elk,deer and moose with it, all at reasonably close range, 150 yds and under
I've tried to find ballistics for the 7-08 Ackley but can't seem to find any, people tell me it usually adds about 100 to 150 fps to the parent cartridge, would you know if that would be true
