Re: 7mm Rem mag and Berger bullets

my final load is 70.5gr of H1000 also but its with the 180's. i could still go higher but this load gave me the best accuracy at 2930 fps. the rifle is a 1-9" lilja barrels 26". there are no pressure signs or a stiff bolt at all.

Re: 7mm Rem mag and Berger bullets

To get the 180gr berger going at 3000fps in the 7mm Rem you really need to lengthen the short 7mm Rem throat to max the powder space. I've seen this done and it works.

Thank you so much 260shooter that is excellent information and it gives me something to work my loads toward. It seems that H1000 is the powder to go with so I am going to get some and give it a try. Also the cooler primer thing is interesting I have never shot any thing but magnum primers in my magnums so I am going to have to play with that to.

I think my rifle has a pretty long throat I have not loaded any 180s to shoot yet but my COAL test cartridge measures 3.553" COAL for my 7 rem mag to touch the lands and the boattail is just entering the neck of the case..

Shawnb what primer size has worked best for you? I hear the 210m works good with the H1000.

Re: 7mm Rem mag and Berger bullets

Hi,
Anyone know for sure or have a really good guess on what kind of fps I could expect for a 180 grain berger in a 7mm rem mag with 66 grain of RL25, nosler brass, federal 215 primer 26 inch barrel?
Thanks, Brad.
