Mossberg Patriot 7mm-08

Recommended Posts

Anyone have experience with this rifle? Accuracy, best factory loads for deer, and coyote? Pros and cons? I'm really interested in picking one up, but looking for real reviews. Thanks in advance.

I have one 308 that with hand loads and a 168 grain match bullet will shoot around 3/4 in when I do my part. The rifle is a package gun with a wood stock and a 3x9 vortex scope on it.

I just purchased a Savage Axis XP during the Black Friday sale at Base Pro. Have been researching the caliber and it is fascinating. Turns out is a fairly good caliber for 400 yards in, for deer, and maybe out to 600 for punching paper, with the right ammo. I believe it is in the class with the 6.5 Creedmoor with a slight edge going to the Creedmoor. The Creedmoor was what I went after, but they were gone in the first 15 minutes. I am satisfied with the 308 and the 7mm08 I purchased on that day. 

I am going to use Winchester Deer Season XP ammo to sight both of my rifles in with. Probably 150 gr Extreme Point bullets. Seems the sweet spot for deer, from my research is, from 140 to 150 gr bullets.  

It is fun to play with new calibers and good hunting for your new rifle Tirebuilder.  Wish I could give you a better review but just not a lot of experience with my new 08 yet.
