7mm Rem Mag and H4831SC
I am working up a load for my savage 7mm rem mag using winchester brass, federal 215m primers, berger 168 vld hunting, and H4831SC. In doing the ladder method starting at 61gr and workint up to 65gr i only found one node. My last shot with 65gr, the book listed max do not exceed presure, it made quite a jump vertically. In doing the best i can to visually check for pressure signs i can not see any. The primer on the case from the 65gr load looks identical to the primer on the 61 gr. The bolt opened as if there was no case in it at all. My question is has anyone loaded this similar load hotter than the max. I am looking to see if there is another node just on the other side of 65. i would like to get my velocity up to 3000. 65gr gave me 2916. any suggestions or slaps in the face are welcome.
