Please type in upper/lower case as it is much easier to read. Thanks much.

SS,

If you're looking for something close to RL-22, You might try WXR stick powder from Winchester. My short mag likes 66.0 grns of it with a 162 SST. BM

Re: 7mm MAG ?

Sorry Len I am illiterate when it comes to typing,I am just starting to type with more than 2 fingers. When I write I print and I print in all capital letters so it's going to be a hard habit to break , so if I back slide just remind me. Who knows I may learn to type yet.

Hello Sharpshooter, maybe we can get together some time & spot for each other since I'm in the area. I too am trying to extend my range. E-mail me & let me know. Later, Ceejack2.

You could try RL25 with those 162's as well, I worked up a load with that going 2900 fps with a 24" barrel for a friend of mine. They shot real well out of his factory Remington.
