YOTE- MY son inlaw and son both shot a 15 shot groups you could cover with sheet of notebook paper at 1000 yards with a factory sendero. another son in law won the match with a 7mm mag. winchester laredo. i would use h-4831 or h-1000 . you live where it is cold and these are extreme powders less affected by temp change. the 168 is an excellent bullet.

Re: Ruger 7mm Rem Mag 1000 yd capable?

I never tried the VLD's in my 7mag (it's a ruger m77 tang safety). I did work up a load with the Berger 168gr Classic hunter though using H1000. the load work up was pretty easy compared to other conventional hunting bullets and you don't give up hardly anything in BC 0.309 vs. 0.314 you do get a bullet thats easier to work up a load and more tolerant of seating depth. Another bullet you might try also is Matrix 168gr VLD their made in British Columbia, I was very impressed with the accuracy I got out of them. They have a G7 BC of 0.311.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
