Well here goes my 2 cents
I have been working on a load for my stock Rem 7mm for 9 months I am reloading all new 7mm Remington brass, CCI Magnum primers, with H1000 powder, Berger 168 vld hunting bullets in a 24 Inch barrel rifle......
The Load that I will be using is 69 grains H1000 with .30 jump averaging 2899 fps
this load seems to be the best one for my gun for good speed and great accuracy touching holes @ 200 yard Bullseye 5 shot group.
I did get a 3025 fps average load with 71.5 grains .30 jump but this load is all over the place about 2.5 inch groups @ 200yards. also ran 71,70.5,70,69.5. all not as accurate as 69.
I have ran all these loads with .20 .30 .40 thousandths jump and the .30 was the best in speed and accuracy for me.
69 at .30 2899fps 69 at .20 2866 avg. differences in speed just in the jump was a surprise to me,,, also surprising was hot loads 70.5 71 and 71.5 @ 200 were low about 2 to 2.5inches avg and the 69 is about 1/4 inch high go figure that 1 out I can't LOL.
Remember all guns shoot different!! If I were you I would do the same no matter how long it takes...
I am using a Huskemaw
5X20X50 zeroed @200yds 28 clicks at 600 yards this is what I get so far 900 yard shots coming next!!!
If You Think Its A Trophy Too You Than Shoot It!!!!!
