The 7mm-08 Remington is a rifle cartridge that is almost a copy of a wildcat cartridge developed around 1958 known as the 7mm/308. As these names would suggest, it uses the .308 Winchester case necked down to accept 7 mm (.284) bullets with a small increase in case length. In 1980, the Remington Arms company popularised the cartridge by applying its own name and offering it as a chambering for their rifles, along with a limited-run series within their Model 7600 pump-action rifles during the early 2000s.
The 7mm-08 Remington works well in most hunting environments, including dense forest areas and wide-open fields. It has a flatter trajectory than the .308 Winchester and .30-06 Springfield at similar bullet weights because the slightly smaller diameter 7mm bullet generally has a better ballistic coefficient (BC) and is thus less affected by drag and crosswind while in flight. Its trajectory is comparable to the .270 Winchester.
