Re: 7mm load for out to 700 yards

Just thougt i would post some results.

first of all, We ended up going with the 162 grain amax. this was mostly because they fit his budget, and i could get them. also, he had on hand some reloader 22.

i loaded up 3 at each 1/2 grain increment from 62 to 66 grains. I shot them all at 100 yds in the dirt, harris bipod and rear bag.

i have used this method several times with great success. i am not worried about throwing a shot, because if two dont shoot good, 3 wont for sure. if two are touching and one is out i may revisit that load.

to the nearest .25 they shot

62 -1.75
62.5 -1.5
63 -.75
63.5 -1.25
64 -1.5
64.5 -1.75
65 -1.5
65.5 -1.25
66 -.75

even though the 66 shot well, we decided to go with the 63 grain load for other reasons.


I then loaded up 6 more at 63 grains and shot two 3 shot groups

.75 and .5.

estimated velocity, fired up exbal, and shot at 525. was about 4 inches low, validated velocity, and then fired a 3 shot group at 525.

shot approx .75 moa at 525.

The wind came up, ran out of powder, and my atv broke down, so we called it a day (broke a gear!)

will go out next time and see what we can do at some further distances.

thanks for all the information.

Bill
