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.

    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.
