Re: 7mm Rem mag load
I shoot the 168 gr berger with a 215 primer and a load of 64.9 gr of 7828ssc. My seating depth is .005 jammed into the lands and grooves. I get a velocity of 2980fps. About your accuracy problem, if everything is in order and you have tried different loads with different seating depths, one possibility is that your gun just doesnt like the bergers. Some bullets shoot great out of some guns and for whatever reason some guns just dont like certain bullets. If this is not the case, i would check the usuall suspects. If the group is jumping around or the zero is always changing with the same load I would check mounts, rings, and scope. I would also check to make sure that neither of the pillar screws are touching the stock. When you take the gun out of the stock and put it back in, if it is truely bedded, you should not have to force it. If you loosen the pillar screws one turn or so and are able to rock the action back and forth a little then you have a bedding problem. Just some ideas to help you out. Good luck and be patient with bergers. I have had some fits getting them to shoot out of a gun or two myself.
