This is similar to one of my 168 loads. Mine is 70.7 H1000. I run 68.7 grains of H1000 with the 180.

Retumbo is a smoker in the 7mm RM if you can get the ES down. Mine runs the 168's at 3100 and the 180s at 3025 without pressure signs.

Re: 7mm Rem mag and Berger bullets

Thank's for the info. What grn charge are you using with the Retumbo? Been wanting to try some anyway. Gonna start shooting the 180's out of one of my 7mag's. Think I have a starting point with H-1000, just been hearing good thing's about Retumbo.
