Johnny k

When I shot long rang NRA matches (900/1000 and 1100yrds
I used a 7mm rem mag with a 29" barrel and got 3254fps
using 67.5 grs H4831 and a 168gr smk- rem 91/2 primers

NOTE: This was a very hot load and brass life was 2
firings so start at 63 or 64grs

I used 66.5grs in hot weather

Never tried H4831sc but it should work well
and it,s easy to measure.

Standard deviation was 9

Good luck and be safe

I was using the max load listed in the Sierra book with RL 19 and getting 2975 out of a Abolt with about 3/4" groups at 200m.
