question on factory ammo

I have a 7mm rem mag and won't have access to my reloading equiptment for awhile and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on decent long range factory ammo I will only be shooting out to 5 or 600 yards.

My second question is I have a back up 7mm rem mag barrel and want it rechambered to something that will push a 180 berger to 3100 or 3200ish but don't want a stw or rum as I already have had those would like something a little different and would take any suggestions thanks

    Some 7mm rem mags like the federal premum 140gr NAB I had better
    luck with the Hornady Custom 139gr BTSP and have been succesfull
    at 500yrds+ with them.

    Try several brands to see which one is the best in your rifle .

    I have not had much luck with heaver factory loads.
