I have found R22 to be the very best powder in the 7mm Rem Mag. I've heard several other shooters make that claim as well.

Good Luck!

Don't over look 7828 I have shot some good groups with it out of my stock 700 7mag.My '02 Hodgdon manual says H4895 is good for 17 rem-458win but didn't list a load for 7 mag.

I appreciate the replies & am interested in reduced loads, as my wife will likely be shooting it more than I will. Once she saw the fluted barrel, she decided it was going to be hers.

Not only is she a keeper, she's a looker as well! I really enjoy watching the firing line shut down to gawk when we show up to shoot! Pretty hard to beat for a hunting buddy too!

Re: 4895 for 7mm Remington Magnum

4895 seems a bit fast for the big 7. might be ok for small bullets like 115 to 120 gr. my best loads for the big stuff was H 870 79.5gr with a 160 Sierra was good for 3100fps and moa groups.H870 is not available from Hodgdons now, however there is an outfit in Arizona called Thunderbird Cartridge Co that sells this stuff as T870 and it seems to be the same burn rate. 870 powder is best used with FED215 PRIMER.
