Re: 7mm accuracy problems

Very cool, thumper. I'd say you found a winner. If I was able to get those kind of results, I'd leave it alone. I was lookin at quarter minute magnums website and it seemed like they tend to favor somewhere around 64 grains of 4831sc and 210m primers for pretty much all of their 7 mags. Are you shooting the regular hunting vld or the classic hunter vld?

Regular and fedreral match 215 primers. I loaded up to 64 gr. But the gun didn't seem to like it.it shot about 3/4 inch groups there. There probly is a sweet spot around 64. Don't know if playing with coal might tighten it up. Still learning alot about all this. Used to be happy at an 1 1/2" and it went bang.
