Re: Short and sweet 7mm Mag recipies

I canīt tell you because I only have access to one brand- vectan powders.

T7000 is similar to H4350 and I canīt go much over 2950 without pressure signs at least in my rifle with a 24 in barrel. 4831 is slower and if you use enough barrel it should also work well and should be able to get higher vel.; I donīt know the detailed performance diference between the 4841 and 4831 sc but this last one should be metering better and I think they are similar in burning rate.

Retumbo is slower than the t7000 and should work.

Re: Short and sweet 7mm Mag recipies

4ked Horn, I've been lurking here for several weeks now and this is the first question I feel that I have any experience to answer. In my 7mm, RL19 works very well with a 140 AB. If you want to shoot a 160, I would probably suggest using RL22. Now, as for an easy metering powder, I haven't used anything that meters better than Ramshot powders. I think their Magnum powder would probably work well with the 160 AB. Their Hunter powder might work with the 140, it would be worth a try. Ramshot's loading data is kinda sparse at the moment, so a little careful experimentation would be necessary. Good luck, hope this was of some benefit.

Re: Short and sweet 7mm Mag recipies

Thank you all for the help. It should get us well on our way to turning that rifle in to a good shooter.

MT4Xfore. Welcome to these fine forums and thank you especially for your input. I'm sure I speak for all the regulars here when I say that input is welcome from anyone as long as it is meant to help. Don't be bashful. Jump right in and let us know what you know. It's all good.

On a side note I was informed the other day that my brothers neighbor is a gun nut so this very evening I walked over to see what he is into. Turns out that he is an ameture (sp?) gun builder but a good one. He showed me a few of the guns he has put together and some of the stocks he has built from stock blanks. These well crafted guns included a heavy barrel 7mmRM with a customized Mauser action. He claims he shot an 8" group at a 1K match with it a few years ago. How fortunate could that be for me and my friend at this moment in time. It looks like this project 7 mil is destined to be a success. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
GRAVITY. It's not just a good idea. It's the LAW!
