The 7mm-08 would be a very good choice. If it will knock over the 500 meter sheep silhouettes,it's plenty powerful. Also,I can attest from experience,it won't beat you to death with recoil. Fired offhand,from a bolt action rifle,it can be comfortably managed by just about anyone-and "anyone" includes the 80 pound young lady,age 16,who won the last match I was at. If chambered in a gas operated self loader,it ought to be just about perfect.

I agree - it's a great cartridge. And not a "baby" bullet. I drop deer dead in their tracks, yet it has almost no recoil.
