7mm Rem Mag and 180 Berger Hybrids

I am switching to this round out of my 7MM Rem Mag. Has anyone used 4831 SC with 180 bergers out of a 7 Mag? What do you use?

working up a load now with Retumbo, magnum would be a good option to I think. 4831 seems like you'd be leaving velocity on the table.

Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

Joe, you're right, I was using H-4831sc in my 7WSM with the 180 Berger's. It shot great, but velocity was low. H- 4831sc worked great with the 162 A-max, 3020fps.

We were just discussing some loads details in another thread about a members recent build. I shared my load on that thread using the hybrids. Do a search because there are a ton of discussions about this.

But i think you will loose lots of speed with 4831. I would go h1000 or retumbo depending on barrel length.

Ok, I do have some Retumbo and H1000 that I am not opposed to using. So I will be shooting this out of a 26" barrel with winchester brass and an overall length of 3.418". Which powder do you think I will be best suited for this mid lenght barrel. My preference would be Retumbo to squeeze a little more velocity out of my gun.
