Re: 7mm mag and 150 Nos Bal Tip

For the last 4 or 5 years I've been using 74 gr of Retumbo fed 215 rem case coal is 3.480. My old Remington 700 it shoots very well the 150 gr bt is a great deer bullet.

I shot the 150 BTs using 68 grs of IMR7828, Fed 215m. Kills were great in the 500 yd range. Would group 2.5 to 3 in at 600 yds.

I use a Hornaday SST in my 7MAG with IMR 4831 and it is the most comsistant load I have found.

65 grains of re 22 seat them .020 off the lands. This load shoots in every 7 mag I have ever seen. 62-64 grains of 4831 sc should also shoot well, just need to chootem and see.

My 7mag, 150 NBT, Win brass, 215M primer, IMR4831:



necks turned, each charge weighed, arguably one of my best loads in my shooting history. Barrel is Shilen Select Match

Derek,
Your group with 150 gr Nos Bal Tip is smaller than mine.

I have the bullets, the brass, the powder.

OK, I can have Brownells send me one of the barrels, but they only stock select match in some fat taper, so I can get one from the barrel man.

I have the reamer.

I can get the primers, I can buy another neck turning device.

Something tells me I will not get that small a group.

You are using Rem700 actions and Jewel triggers?
I prefer a VZ24 action and Keplinger trigger, but that can't make that much difference.

Are you using a variable to 10X scope?
Bi pod?

Clark: scope is Leupold 4.5x14x40 AO. Target is result of bench shooting with front and rear rest. Shilen bbl is #4 contour, 24" long. Action is trued 700 by Shilen. This particular 7mag has factory trigger at 2 pounds. This is the rifle:



I should have my first 280 Remington coming this summer with a Shilen bbl on it. I'm anxious to see what it will do.
