Re: 7mm Rem mag load advice

I have a 30" #7 SS in 7 Rem mag. Of all things a 1 in 7 twist...another story...

Am getting great results with 69 grs of RL-25 with both 180 Berger VLD thick and thin jacketed versions. Vel 3100. Custom reamer with bullets solidly into rifling...your results may vary...

    What Cartridge length are you using?

    Thanks,

    OAL of loaded round with 180 Berger VLD is 3.515" with bullet into the rifling approx .015"
    I have the luxury of building on a like new Mark X with a 375 H and H magazine box. Lots of room to chase the rifling over time and it fits and feeds great.

    Hope you find a great load for you 7 mag.

    Thanks for all of the info so far. I loaded up the 180's with H-1000 and the Accubonds with RL25.

    I guess my barrel finished out at 27"

    I hope to go shoot next weekend.

    What is everyone using for a die set? I was thinking of ordering a Lee Collet. I currently have an olds RCBS two die set.

    I'll be interested in your results. I've pulled an old S&W M1500 7mm RM out of the closet and figure on maybe working up some loads for it. I was going to try 150 E-Tips, 160 AB's and 180 Bergers and/or JLKs. I'm going to try Retumo and H1000.

    Do you shoot at the Logan range? If so, it would be a pleasure to get together and shoot some, sometime.

    Cheers,

    MR

    I had the lee collet die and it shaved too much brass off of the brass just above the belt. I bought a new set of RCBS dies and have been much happier.
