I used 72g Retumbo or H1000 is a really good power as well, with the 168's. Here is how it shoots

Re: 7 Rem 168 VLD suggestion

On a 7stw using 78 gn of h1000, our groups went from 1" 3 shot group at a 100 yrds to one hole, just changing to win std primers. We were using fed 215. Seating depth is huge on those bullets also as .05 can put you in left feild.

Re: 7 Rem 168 VLD suggestion

I tried Re-22 in my 7mm mag using Win brass, WLRM primers and a 162 Amax. I got great accuracy but couldn't get any speed. I am loading 71.7 gr of Retumbo and getting 2925 with it. Have only shot it to 600 yards but with a 20 yr old Remington Adl it is holding moa at that distance.
