Thank You

To all of our military service personnel, I salute you. Regardless of what happens in this election, you are now and will continue to be our front line. Without you, we will never be able to enjoy our freedom. I wish I had the balls to be under fire, day after day, month after month, year after year. Thank you for protecting my freedom to own and use a firearm. I will not let you down. I will not forget your sacrifice.

no. i dont think so. i know the 7mm-08 is a necked down .308 with a 7mm bullet... so the casings should feed fine, but the barrel is made for a 7mm bullet (which is .284), not a .30 caliber bullet, therefore the barrel will be too small.

I just found out that I could use .38 special shells in my .357 mag. As you can see I really don't know shit.

zygotican,
if it makes you feel any better, most of us don't know shit either. He left the forums before we could get to know him...

.308 shells

NO! 7mm-08 is a necked down .308 cartridge so it must have a 7mm bullet not the .308 caliber,if you reload you can resize .308 brass to use the .308 wont chamber in your gun
