That combination is hard to beat. you can also try some H4831! I like Hodgson powder better (seems to shoot cleaner).

AJ and Willys nailed it right on the head. Hard to beat the 160 gr Accubond, works well from up close to quite a ways out there.

Those are also the first two powders I tried for my 7 SAUM (baby 7 mag). I stuck with the Re 22 just because I got a little more velocity.
