7 wsm set up

hey
just signed up finally after reading for a month or so, and realy enjoy reading all the grate info that flows through here. i just got a browning eclipse m 1000 in 7mm wsm, the scope i want to put on is the 6-20x50 mark 4 with the tmr reticle, i am thinking of loading either the 168grn berger vlds, or the 175grn smk's. i would like to shoot paper, rocks,coyotes, deer, possibly elk, and maybe once i get some practice in i would like to try to shoot 1000 yds. i am thinking once i get some loads built up that shoot real good i will send all my info in to leupold and have a custom turret made to make things a bit more simple. anyone have any suggestions, or comments that may help me out, i would appreciate it.

    I use to shoot a 7mm rem mag at 1,000 rds using a 168 smk
    and it performed great so any bullet around that weight should
    work in the WSM. I have several 7 WSM,s and like the 160 accubond
    for hunting and the 168 SMK,s or the Bergers for the loooong stuff.
