7mm Rem mag load

I need a little help with some starting load data. I just purchased some Sierra 168gr match kings and berger 168 gr vld. I'm looking for a good load for my Remington Sendero 7mm.

    I shoot two 7mm rem mags and one i shoot 59 grains of H4350 with 168 berger vlds in a sendero special 24 inch barrel and i get 1/2 moa @ 2900 fps. My other is a custom barreled 700 with 26 inch shilen and i use 69.5 grains H 1000 and I also get 2900 fps with 1/2 moa shooting 168 berger vlds. They took some time to get shooting but these are the best loads i found. these are not starting loads so may want to back off at first.

    Stu.

    71.5 Grains of Retumbo with the 168 Berger and a 215 primer shoot very well. Expect Velocity around 3070. I shoot 73 grains Retumbo out of mine at a shade over 3100.
