Reloading 168 berger vlds...need advice

Getting into reloading my 7mm Rem Mag with 168 Berger vlds. I have a factory model 700 with a 26 inch barrel and am looking for advice for a consistent load Thanks.

    If you want consistancy, H1000 is the most consistant powder i've found. Every rifle is different, there is no 2 the same. There is no consistant load for a Remington, that won't work in a Winchester. Every rifle has their own specific load. I can give you a Min. & Max. recommended load, but you'll have to do some progression to figure out what works best for you.

    I hear good things about IMR 7828 SSC... I have some, but haven't tried it yet.

    For primers I only use Federal. For magnum calibers I use 215 or 215M. Some claim the Gold Medal Match 215M primers are more consistant, but I have found that I am just as consistant loading with regular Fed 215 primers.
