The 7mm-08 was initially designed to make the near-perfect metallic silhoutte round. Less recoil than many of the .308 diameter rounds, better trajectory, and long bullets, to add duration to the impact time against steel targets.

Hunters soon discovered the benefits of the short, but flat-shooting, accurate round.
