7 Rem Mag and 180 VLD's

Anyone pushing these? I got some load data from Berger, and compared to what I'm loading my 168's to currently, their numbers seem very "safe".

How fast is everyone pushing these? Load data welcome.

Re: 7 Rem Mag and 180 VLD's

Definitely shoot the 180VLDs in your 7mag. I'm sorry I don't have any load data for you, but I'm almost sure you could get them going 3000+

I push the 168's in my 280Rem at 2850.

Berger's load data has clearly been vetted by a lawyer. All their data is looooooooow

I think the fastest is 2850 to 2900 out of a 26" barrel I think, cant remember for sure though.

Im have been shooting the 180s for about a month now they are extremely accurate and shot way better than i could ever get the 168s to shoot try 4831sc start with 71 grains of retumbo about .020-.030 off the lans see if that helps!

Re: 7 Rem Mag and 180 VLD's

70-71gr of Retumbo and the 180's have been running 3000-3050 in all the ones I have been building for people. My reamer has the bullet set out a bit, but still fits in the standard mag. These are 26-27" barrels by the way. A couple of guys have run up to 72gr of powder and aren't seeing any pressure.

I figured it was low. Any experience with H1000 charges? I have some on hand.

What are you using for your 280 powder wise and such if you do not mind me asking? I finally got my hands on some 168's but only 1 box on the brighter side I grabbed 4 boxes of 140's at the same time. Hard to get the hunting bergers up here as they sell out as fast as they hit the shops. Sometimes I am in the right shop at the right time but more often than not just left wanting.

Sorry for the Hijack to the orignal poster.
