Good looking pipe and tight groups, I'm waiting on my parts to build my 7mm mag' and will by trying the 180's with either H1000 or Retumbo.

Another load to try is 69.0 grains of H1000 with your choice of primer for 2950-3000 fps. If you look at the current Hodgdon data, both powders max at loads higher than I stated, but be careful and watch for pressure signs. The retumbo loads tighten up in ES close to max.
I was pondering the same thing. I really would like to push a little faster, as long as they remain accurate. Thanks for confirming my gut feeling
