7mm Rem Mag Berger Load Data

I'm looking for advice on loading a 168 grn Berger Vld.I plan on seating the bullet .010 off the lands which puts me at 3.510 in my rifle.I am not sure how much more powder I can use being that the bullet is seated further.I used to load 70 grns of Retumbo at 3.365 in my model 70.I am looking to reach the 3100 fps mark.Any tips are greatly appreciated, thank you Long Range members!!

I just use HSM Trophy Gold 168VLD ammo in my 7mmRM and it works great. Pricey but great shoots like a laser. I'm sure your reloads will also.

Re: 7mm Rem Mag Berger Load Data

My accuracy loads for both my sons 7mm rm 26" barrel and my 28" 7mm rm are 69.3 and 69.4 grains of H1000 respectively. His rolls at 2960 fps and mine is 3010 fps both ES under 10 fps and both shoot 1/2 moa. It is easy to hit 3100 fps with 168 grain vlds although there was no accuracy that fast although it was fun to hit those speed. Remember start low and work up every gun is different.

Re: 7mm Rem Mag Berger Load Data

Have you tried using 4831 sc? Iam using it now and have had a lot of sucess with it currently Im using 65.4 grains with the Berger and running 2990 fps- 3030 fps. I have gotten some outstanding groups that sem to stay consistent in the different temps that we are getting right now out east.

Good Luck hope this helps
