Thanks Axxe,I'm going to go to Cabelas tomorrow and buy some heavier bullets for the 7mm/08 and see if they will bring the groups into the .500" or under range.That's where I like my rifles to shoot,and I believe this barrel is capable of doing it on a regular basis.I just have to find the right combination of components.
Varget usually works well on anything based off a 308 case.

well looking over Hodgdon's website reloading data, i can use the Varget in most all of my rifle calibers! seems like a pretty versatile powder.
