Re: 7mm rem mag 168 smk retumbo load data
I shoot the 168 Berger and use up to 72.0 gr, but it prefers 71.0. I'm not experienced enough to know how much of a diff the SMK would make, but at 168 grains I would start around 68.0 gr and work up. I prefer Fed 215, but it shoots well also with Rem 9.5's. Bergers are sensitive to seating, mine works best when kissed. Shoots poor when seated back and pressure spikes adding as much as 100fps if pushed into the lands. My load gives me 2975 with a 24.5" Sako. Good luck.
