That's what I said.

The only thing that really matters is wind. Distance (drop) doesn't count. Even with the wind, these two rounds are so close, over-lap in so many ways, that the arguments can be reversed simply by choosing a different bullet. Very, very few shooters will choose the bullet (in either caliber) that has the absolute highest BC. No matter what each individual chooses, there is likely to be a bullet in the other caliber that is as good or better.

Hence, I say that the only thing that matters is practice and the 7-08 has less recoil, which means (probably) more and better practice.

However, I fully recognize that all of that has a strong dose of subjectivity and so will not likely convince anyone who believes otherwise.
