I've always had good luck with 139 gr. Hornady's. My Tikka loves the 140 Accubonds, all 5 of my 7mm08's get fed 140's, so far. May try some 120's at some point, but hard to mess with sucess. DP

My "X" gun in 284Win [rechambered 7-08] seems to have better accuracy with the 139gr Hornady SP. I tried some 120 Nosler BT, but they didn't shoot as well.

But Dan,
Do your results even matter is you don't use Marlin Barrels? I thought the OP was asking about his stock Marlin gun not a custom gun.

Ok. The way I read your post led me to believe you where talking about aftermarket or non-Marlin barrels.
