Very nice! H1000 is definately faster than 4350. With the 180's H1000 gives 3 MOA less drop at 1000yds compared to a load of simular pressure and H4350.

I had a SD of 9.2 on my extreme temp test by the way. I will never even attempt a different powder over H1000 due to its extreme ability to resist temp drops and raises.

Re: Best 7MM WSM loads?

Don't sell yourself short on just H1000. Try the test with any of the "extreme" powders, and you'll be just as happy.
