Excellent choice. I do reload but 140gr Core Lokts are my go to bullet for WTs. I favor H4895 also but the 7-08 kinda likes a pretty good spread of powder. It ain't hard to come up with a good load.
I've used Sierra match bullets to win several factory matches with my 7-08 Classic so it's not gonna be hard to get accuracy out of your rifle. ;D
beemanbeme , I really don't know as I don't have a chrony. I would guess around 2700fps. The only rifle I load to max is my .243 and the reason for that is it seems my .243 gets the best accuracy at or near max loads.
