You are comparing apples to oranges. BC has alot to do with your numbers. Granted, the 7mm-08 is a good cartridge, BT bullets from the other listed calibers would have significantly different and better numbers, especially if they were handloaded as well.

The only really bad thing, if you want to call it that, about the 7mm-08 is stores generally only carry 2 to 3 different types of bullets and they are generally in the 140 gr. range. The same goes for the 260.

They should be a great gun. They're basically a twin to the 7x57 Mauser which has had great success over the years as both a big game and military rifle. I'm found of that cartridge as it was one of my first high powered rifles. The 7-08 has a lot more brass available being a member of the 308, 30-06 family.

our younger son has been shooting a 7mm-08(savage mod. 11) since he was 12 or 13. it has accounted for alot of deer. it's the best light recoil youth caliber made( my opinion)for deer.
