Re: 168 bergers load for 7 rem mag

I am in the process of loading up some 168's myself. I will be loading up some test rounds for seating depth this weekend as berger advises. Then once I find the depth that works best for my gun I will work a charge up. I am using H1000, 215primers, and winchester brass. From what I have read H1000 is supposed to hzve a little better ES than Retumbo but I have never tested it myself to find out. I have had pretty good luck with H1000 to this point.

    The load I shoot in my 700P, is 67.0-H1000-168 VLD @ 3.336 OAL. In my rifle, that puts me at about .040 off the riflings. Velocity runs at 2977. My barrel must be tight or something, because I have heard off guys shooting MORE powder, to get the same velocity. If I go with more powder, I get pressure signs.
    This load is Extremely accurate, as I have several sub 1/4 inch @ 200 yards. Barrel length is 26 inch. Enjoy!
