Re: 7 Mag Brass ??? Which one

For what it's worth, the load I'm shooting is 71grn,H-1000,cci 250 mag primers,win brass. Sometimes I use Remington brass, really can't tell a differance! This is with the Berger 168 VLD. Just my two cents!

What kind of groupings with the various powders. I shot IMR 7828 in my 270 WSM and it did very well.

i Have been using Winchester brass for two years now and haven't any problems with the 168's.

Try H4831sc , my R700 loves 65.5grns H4831sc and the 168 hunting bergers liked about 100off lands.

MV was around 2975

MOA to 800 no problem.

Re: 7 Mag Brass ??? Which one

Many years ago, before so many powders come out another good powder for a 7mm was IMR 4350. the load I was using was 64grn,CCI 250 mag primer,Winchester brass. I used this in a Remington Sendero(26"barrel). this was before Berger started making bullets like they do now. I was shooting a Sierria 160 Game King. it shot 1/2 in an better(depending on me)! Today with technology, I havnt seen a 7mm mag that doesn't like H-1000. As far as brass goes,(all I have is Winchester an Remington) I havnt seen that big of a difference. guess later i'll try other brass . Just my 2cts

i was using norma cases religiously for 2 years but it started getting expensive having primer pockets loosen after 3 reloads (norma here is $250/100) and they werent max loads. hot but not max. i switched to winchester a few months back and and happy i did ($45/50) it takes a little more case prep but thats the fun of reloading for me. i have 3 reloads on the first 20 cases and the pockets are still nice and tight. i annealed the cases after the first loads ran through and they are looking better than my norma cases were.
