Re: Its Officially Settled. New Rifle on its way
I shoot the 150gn Ballistic Tip in my 7Mag and have not been disappointed yet. I was recently shooting 63.5gn of IMR4350 with a BR2 primer. This load is .5gn above listed max (Nosler #6) so work into it. Accuracy at 100yds was 1/4" and velocity averaged 3240FPS. This is the load I took the 300lb black bear with at 15 steps.
I ran out of IMR4350 and am now doing load development with IMR4831. Right now I'm at 64gns, velocity is averaging 3140FPS and Saturday's 5shot group was .4". This powder is promising. I have also have good velocity and accuracy from RL22. JohnnyK.
