just gettin started in reloading--i am trying my 2 favorite cartridges: 257 robts. and the 7/08 rem.
i would appreciate input on a very mild, but still accurate load for the latter.
thanks in advance.

120 gr nosler BT with 39 grains of IMR 4895 or H4895 both work good.

Many readers/posters here would recommend that you not take a posted load for any gun.
However, take the suggested load(s) and verify them ahgainst the powder makers website. Hodgdon (IMR) and Alliant have wonderful data on their sites. Im sure other po makers do also. I have not needed others so I dont check them.

For mild yet effective practice and field loads, I use the Hodgdon youth loads posted on their web site.
