A co-worker of mine recently enrolled his son in Hunterâ€™s Education and bought him an SPS 7mm-08 as his first rifle. Previously he has only fired a 22lr. I offered to reload for his son and create some reduced loads to help him acclimate to the increased recoil then gradually introduce hotter loads to try and alleviate any bad flinching habits he might develop. My question is how â€œlightâ€ can a load be made and still be safe? I have some old 154 gr Hornady SSTs that I was thinking of getting rid of so he could use for target practice. Thoughts on powder and charges to get started? Any advice is welcome. Thank you.
