I'll tell you something that might **** off a few 7mm-08 fans here but the 7mm-08 is a finicky cartridge despite what the books say, took me seven months to get mine dialed in right. I don't load 175gr the heaviest thing I load is 160gr Deep Curls and Game Kings but they do really well with H380 powder (consult your Lyman #49 for load data) The only two powders that shoot worth a darn for me are Big Game and H380 it took me a long time to figure that out. H414, RL19, and IMR4350 would hardly stay on the paper at 100 yards. So long story short it might not be the rifle, I know several experienced handloaders who had trouble with their 08s.
