4831 for 160 gr Barnes in 7mm rem mag?

I would like to work up a load for my M77 Ruger 7mm Rem mag for a 160 gr Barnes TSX FB bullet using either H-4831 or IMR 4831 powder. Anybody have any suggestion on the load I might start with?
Thanks!

    I've got the Barns Reloading Manual Number 4. For a 160-grain TSX FB using IMR 4831 the minimum load is 52.0 grains at 2578fps and the maximum is 58.0 grains at 2791fps.

    I know this is not part of your question but I have been using Reloader 22 with great results in my 7rm, a friend of mine used almost every powder on the market including H-4831 and IMR 4831 and neither one grouped as well as the Reloader 22.

    I will second the idea of using RL-22 in a 7mm Rem Mag.. I have gotten great velocity and accuracy using RL-22 and 160 Barnes TSX bullets in my Ruger 77 Mark I. My second choice is IMR_4831.

    Well here's a load for RL 22, minimum 53.5 grains at 2607fps and maximum 61.0 grains at 2858fps.

    Thanks for the info guys! I've ordered a Barnes reloading manual (#4). Guess I'd better go buy some RL-22 powder!
