I am running 67.5- H1000 -168 w/ WLR primer @ 3.336 OAL. Velocity runs right at 2977. Extremely accurate, consistent. This setting puts me at .040 off the throat. That is my sweet spot. I have gotten groups at 200 less than .25. This load is a keeper.

Re: 7mm Rem mag and Berger bullets

Ya that sounds like an awesome combo! I'm currently cutting holes at 100 yards, but just got it doing so. I have not had a chance to put it through my friends chrony yet. I'm really hoping I can get 2800 fps out of it, but that's just me being picky!

Is this a misprint? Or are you talking 1/2 MOA at 1000yds?

Re: 7mm Rem mag and Berger bullets

260Shooter....
I found anyhting past 68 grains of H1000 created pressure signs. Wonder what hte differnce is, other than the barrel? I am using a stock Rem Sendero. Stuggled to get the case out of the action. I full length size them, but foudn that after the 4th firing of the brass, the base expanded too much. Accuracy was great, but I have had to back off to 67 grains, and it eliminated the stuck cases. I do know that I chronied 2950 consistently with the 68 grain load.... Accuracy was .4-.5 as well.
