H 4831 is one of the best in the 7mm RM and the newer H4831SC should be better.

Start in the middle of the loading manual and work up.

I'm using Retumbo in my hunting partner's 7RM with fed 215's & 140 grn Barnes MRX. Just over 3200fps & good accuracy.

mine just would not eat the 4350. I did find a good load using 62 grains RL22 with the 150 NBT.

H4831sc or Hybrid 100v. I wouldn't use H1000 or Retumbo unless I was loading 160grn or heavier bullets.
