Mm Remington

The 7mm-08 Remington was originally a wildcat developed for the game of High Power Rifle Metallic Silhouette Shooting. Basically, the .308 Winchester case necked down to accept 7mm caliber bullets, the 7mm-08 will reliably topple rams at 500 meters without excessive recoil.

These attributes prompted Remington to introduce the 7mm-08 as a factory cartridge in 1980. After initial rave reviews by members of the gun press, the 7mm-08 Remington was almost forgotten. It has maintained a niche in the market because of its ability to produce excellent external ballistics in a short, handy carbine.

The 7mm-08 Remington is an excellent cartridge for deer-sized game and is, again in the hands of a skilled hunter, suitable for elk and moose when proper bullets are used.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the 7mm-08 Remington is 52,000 C.U.P.

280 REMINGTON/7mm express remington

Originally introduced in 1957 to compete with the .270 Winchester, the .280 Remington is another derivative of the .30-06. It is very similar to the wildcat 7mm-06. The .280 is available in auto loading, pump action, and bolt action rifles.

After it failed to dislodge the popular .270 Winchester, the .280 was renamed "7mm Express." Apparent confusion between it and the popular 7mm Remington Magnum caused the company to revert back to the original .280 Remington moniker.

When loaded to similar pressures, the .280 Remington duplicates or exceeds the performance of the .270 Winchester on both varmints and big game.

This is an excellent cartridge for the handloader, handling a wide variety of bullet weights with ease.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .280 Remington/7mm Express is now established as 60,000 P.S.I. and 50,000 C.U.P.
