Quick 7mm mag load help please.

Can you please check your load manuals for a 7mm rem mag recipe using any 160 gr bullet AND HODGDONS 4895 POWDER.

A friend of mine wants to load up some rounds using a recipe another friend loaded for him in the past. He gave me this list of components:

64 grains Hodgdons 4895 powder.
160 gr sierra boat tail.
non mag primer.

So I went lookin' and the Hodgdons website didn't list this powder at all for 7mm mag and neither did my speer manual.

I would love for someone to look in a Sierra manual and any others to see if this powder is listed for 7mm mag and how much for a 160 gr bullet.

If no one comes up with anything I need to send an email to him by morning (or as soon as I can) to not buy anything till we get this ironed out.

Thanks.

OK, unless I missed something in their free on line manual there is nothing there either for 160 gr bullets and H4895. If I missed it please post the load number and I will look again.

Thanks.

4895 seems to be a tad fast on the burning side for a 7 mag. Just my thinking. At 64g you might need a hammer to open the bolt???

Reason I say that is because most people on there using 61-63g with IMR-4350, 4831 and RL22 powders. Those are a lot slower burning than 4895. 64g would have a hell of a pressure I would think at 64g. Anyone else want to comment on this post? I dont want to be the sole one.

10-4 that. Do you see it in any of your manuals for 7mm mag at all?

Re: Quick 7mm mag load help please.

i did find a imr 4895 with max load of 52 grains. Don't know if I would try that load data. The imr was for 150 partition IMR 4350 and AA 3100 both would be safer and would work for the 160 grainers. Don't know if that would help
