I don't shoot the Hornadys...But as for the Berger 168's, I would start them about 0.010" shorter than your internal magazine box length. Then adjust from there.

Use Berger Hybrids and load to magazine length or do the following and let your rifle tell you what seating depth it likes with either the VLD or the AMAX:

Re: 7mm reloading

I have a Sendero, and recently placed a Brux Barrel on it. I originally set the 168 Bergers at 3.31 overall, but after reading the Berger article on seating depth, loaded them a bit longer at 3.41 COAL. This seems to be where it shoots best for me, in my rifle. At 3.44, I started to get some bolt resistance when closing bolt.

I got 300 of the 162 gr Hornady poly tipped bullets for 6.5 cents each in 2004.
I should have got more.

I have been shooting them at 3.34"

Re: 7mm reloading

.010 off the lands, assuming they fit in the mag and back off as needed for accuracy
