Re: 7mm rem mag - suggest powder, bullet

I spent the whole weekend testing and doing
load developement on a SAKO AV in 7mm win.mag.,the only bullet I was testing was
the nosler 150 gr. ballistic tip,I tested
6 powder's with several load's for each
powder. at the end of the weekend atleast
for this gun the clear winner was 65gr. of
vvn560 av.vel.3018 with s.d.4
I kept thinking that I could get more velocity out of a 7-mag.but this was the
best I could wring out of this 24" barrel
without sacrificing accuracy.

I'm using 66.3gr of IMR7828 to push a 160 Accubond at 2975fps from my 24" factory barrel. This is a touch off max but it's where my barrel wants to shoot. I have had it shoot under an inch at 300yrds.
