Re: 160 Accubond and H1000

Worked up a load for 70.0 grains of H-1000 Today. It gave me around 2910 fps and 1.25" with the 160 Accubond. Gonna try to work up a little more and see if groups tighten up. If not, may move to the 162 btsp.

Re: 160 Accubond and H1000

Another good powder for the 7mm Rem Mag is IMR-7828. I have shot excellent groups with a 175 grain Nosler Partitions over 3000 fps. I have yet to try the Accubond.
Best of Luck

7mm Mag
175 NP
66.0 grains IMR-7828
CCI-250
WW-cases
MV-3060 fps.

try dropping back to 210 primers with the h1000. thats what the military uses with thier 220 grn smk/h1000 loads this way you dont get a pressure spike. you should still get a full burn even witha compressed load

I worked up some 7 mag loads with 160's and I found R-22 and 7828 to be the correct burn rate with mag primers

Re: 160 Accubond and H1000

Gave up on H1000 after moving up a grain and a half with no velocity increase. I picked up some retumbo and loaded the accubonds with ww cases, fed gm215m primers, 70.0 grains retumbo and 3.330 oal. The load chronied at 2880 average and shot to about 1.1-1.2 inches with me pulling a shot to open it up to 2" hah. Anywho, this load seems promising as I still have 3.5 grains to work with according to Hodgdon.
