Retumbo was the best powder in My 24" barrel. About 69 grains is mine's sweet spot.

Re: Best 7MM WSM loads?

Let's dig this old thread out of the basement. My 7mm WSM should be done this month. I've got H1000 amd 175 ABLR's so far. Anyone tried the new IMR7977? I'm also interested in Retumbo, as I understand it may be a tad faster? I'm built on a long action Remington so I should be able to seat them out as far as I want. Any new concoctions out there for long range deer and elk? I've read the article on 6mmbr...

I don't have any H4350, but I do have a bunch of IMR 4350, I could try that. I've read that 4350 just doesn't have the snort to push big bullets, but works great with 168's.

Re: Best 7MM WSM loads?

Anyone try RL22?? I've had my best accuracy and velocity with this powder. Hit a nice Colo bull elk about 3 years ago with this powder and a 154 Interbond at 573 yds. Rifle is a Winchester Model 70 Shadow with a NOS laminate stock and PTD Obermeyer bottom metal. No bedding, but it shoots wonderful and consistent.

I will be taking this combo to Colorado again in October. : )

65g MRP and 168 Berger at 2.92" is my favorite. 3060 fps.
