Re: 120 grain in 7mm rem mag load

Probably not what you are after, but I had a reduced load for my wife with the 7mm and (moly) 120 NBT....... 50 g H4895/215 fed/win brass/120NBT. I am thinking I was around 2700 fps. The beauty of this setup was the 120s were dead on at 200 and my full on loads with the 150NBT was dead on at 300...I mean DEAD on.

She killed here doe at 200 with the 120's, but before that she wacked her buck at 625 with my 300 WBY. That shot, by the way, was the first time EVER that she had fired a centerfire rifle.....lots of 22 and hand gun stuff though.

Thanks and happy Thanksgiving.

Shoot safely.

Thanks for the help. I will try these powders. I'm still wondering about bullet weight and speed. These are shorter range shots. I want the bullet to open fast.
