Looks like I never developed dangerous game loads for the 7/08 beyond 150gr. bullets. Most likely because I toted a .308 far oftener. Check out the loading manuals, then. And don't get in a dither if the load that shoots well, and safely, isn't "fast".

Yeah you are right about velocity.I reckon something between 2200 and 2400fps will be just right and give better penetration just like you mention in your essays.Bevan
