7MM-08 REMINGTON

The following data was developed in a Remington 700 BDL rifle with a factory heavy barrel, 24 inches long. I bedded the action and free floated the barrel. A Leupold 6.5 20 X scope was installed using Leupold bases and rings.

We used Remington brass and RWS primers. All bullets were molly coated, and all groups were 5 shots at 100 yards.
