My next brain fart, or has it been done. I like the 7-08 round. Wondering what I'm going to get in to trying to get one built. Or is it already out there? Remember I did say brain fart.
I have shot 4 whitetails in excess of 300 yards with the 7-08. It just doesn't die at 200. I have witnessed on 640 yard one shot kill with one. Weatherby Vanguard 24 inch tube. As for the 223 (cheaper ammo) or 204 I would go with the 223 first, then pick up a 204 with 20 to 24 inch varmit barrel upper to use on my lower. Interchangeability is a great thing here. The 204 is a smoking hot little round.Bobby, I whitetail hunt with the 7mm-08 and really enjoy it. As you know, not a lot of felt recoil, (good thing), but falls to the earth at 200 yds.(bad thing). I thought about this also and I just don't know. My dilemma today is I'm trying to decide between ordering a kit in .204 or .223. So many choices, so little money. If you have one, what's your opinion of the .204 in the AR format? HJ
