I didn't get to try out my reloads this year. I got to try one out last year, though. It done well.
I've got 3 that I would like to try out. Guess it'll take me a few years to get them all tested.

Of the three I killed this year, just one was with a handload. 150gr SST out of a .308. Hit a good sized doe behind the shoulder, complete pass through and took out both lungs. I have used this bullet for years and never had a problem, I swap up between it and a 150 Nosler BT just depending what I have on the shelf.

Killed another with a 150gr Partition out of a 280. Hit her a little high and back but she didn't move. Last kill was a 90# doe with a BAR 243, 100gr Hornady BTSP. Heart shot, took about three steps and piled up.

I can't remember when I last killed a deer with factory ammo. Had to be sometime in the early 70s.

Mine did great with the one 8 point I shot. Was shooting my 7 mag with handloaded 140 accubonds. He fell right where he was standing. Have shot several deer over the last 4 years with this combo and have been really happy with it. Just bought a model 70 extreme weather in 7mm-08 a few weeks ago and am looking forward to seeing how the 140 accubond performs out of it.

My did great as well. I got a 85 lb doe with a 63gr sierra semi-point out of my 222 Rem. Ran 50 yards with nothing in her chest but a chunky red soup.

Never have any issues with my reloads. Killed 2 with the rifle this year. 1st with a 7'08 using 140 gr gamekings, ran about 20 yards and piled up. 2nd was from a 308 shooting a 150 gr interlock, fell where it stood. Also killed a hog and a coyote with that same 308. Took the top of the hogs skull off and disemboweled the coyote.

performed flawlessly as they always do. The only deer I killed was with my 25-06 hand loads.


Only accurate rifles are interesting.

I bet that action on the model 70 extreme weather is smooth as silk. I have had my eye on one that is a .308.

It is definently the smoothest action I have ever seen. The only thing I've got that is pretty close is a model 700 BDL in 243 that was bought back around year 2000. If I were you and I'd found one in 308 for a good price I wouldn't hesitate buying it.
