Powder choice

What powder would you guys recommend for 162gr A max bullets in a 7mag? Specifically extruded?

    I assume you mean 7mm Rem Mag?

    If so, RL-22

    I've tried a bunch of different powders and I've had the best luck with RL-22 and the 162gr A-max and 160gr Accubond. Drive them to around 3000 or a little more and be impressed.

    Either what AJ recommends + you may want to give IMR 7828ssc a try unless AJ as tried that one with that bullet. RL-22 is pretty faithful.....

    I've never burned a kernel of the IMR 7828 or the SSC version. I've heard good things about it, but never used it.

    "Back in the day" I had good luck with IMR 4350. Of course it's faster than 7828 or RL-22...more like RL-19.
