Hi Ronnie, first, great choice of calibers. My 7mmWSM, 9 twist Broughton likes the Beger, 180VLD hunting bullet touching the lands. The Hornady 162 Amax is very good too. I didn't want to burn my barrel up with load development. I found 62.0 gr. H4831sc is great with both bullets. I think H1000, RE-22 work well also. i have not tried the accubond but i bet it will be great as well. keep us posted, good luck!
