I am loading some 7-08 rounds for my daughter's rifle. She has not shot any rifle bigger than my AR-15, but wants to go deer hunting with me this year. She is very small and I want to start her out with a very mild recoiling round in her rifle.
My question is regarding minimum powder charges. What is it that sets the lowest charge weight? Is that the lowest charge that will reliably fire the round? What would happen if I was to go below the suggested minimum charge weight? Thanks, John
