168 bergers load for 7 rem mag

Shot out to 1000 yards this past weekend for the first time. Pretty cool. I had some good results @ 500 yds with l68 berger rounds from HSM. I would like to tweak them with some hand loads. Any pointers or load recommendations?

Thanks

Try 70.7 grains of H1000 with a CCI 250 and a 168 touching the lands. 71-72 grains of Retumbo with a Fed 215 is also a killer combo. Both loads in Win brass.

Win brass
215 federal primers
71.5 grains of retumbo
168 Berger hunting vld
This load shoots well in my rifle with 3 shot groups in the 5-7" range at 1000 yards.
As always start low and work up on the load. Good luck.

Re: 168 bergers load for 7 rem mag

71gr H1000
Fed 215M or Rem 9 1/2m
Nosler brass
168gr Berger Classic hunter

0.010 of the lands to 0.100 off the lands solid 1/2moa on bad days
It is a pretty warm load though, work up with care.
