Re: Quick 7mm mag load help please.

That does help. It helps me believe that someone is giving my friend either a bogus load or at least a load I will look at closely before he spends any money on nonreturnable powder.

Thanks again.

    Well I talked to my friend and he got the scoop from his buddy. The load called for 64 gr of IMR4831 not Hodgdons 4895.

    I was hoping someone would be kind enough to look in Sierras loading manual and tell me the max load for IMR4831 using a 160 gr SGK in a 7mm rem mag.(If they even tested it with this bullet.)

    The IMR site lists 61 gr max with a 160 nosler partition. That leaves us 3 gr short.

    Thanks.

    "4"
    Look here http://www.reloadersnest.com/ You will notice that according to this site, 63.7 gr of H4831SC will give you just under 3000. IMR 4831 is a tetch faster so 64 gr would be fairly hot I suspect. There are better powders out there for the 160 in a 7mm Rem than 4831. Good luck, and good shootin'

    I think you still have my REALLY OLD Speer manual - I think it is manual #7. Check in that manual for a load if you have it. They list loads that are much higher than the newer manuals, so something like what Mike's buddy said might be in there.

    My Lyman 47th gives a load max of 66gr H4831 for 154 and 162 gr bullets, nothing for IMR 4831 or H 4895
