    Deer Load....

    There are many good whitetail loads for the 7RM. When I take in a 7RM for custom load developement I start with R22 and H4831. I load a few different charge weights under bullets such as: 150NBT, 140NAB, 160NAB, 160 Sierra BTSP, 140NPT and try a few groups to see which the rifle prefers. Then, try and perfect that particular load. Fed 215 GMMs are my favorite primers, but the others will work as well.

    IMR7828 and H1000 are good powders as well.

    Good Luck

    7mm Rem Mag: Rem brass, Hornady 162gr A-max, H-4831, CCI 250 primers.
    I have tried H-4350 but have a little better luck with H4831.

    150gn Nosler Ballistic Tip, .010" off lands and grooves, 67.0gn RL22, CCI BR2, brass type hasn't seemed to matter in two different rifles, just fully prepped. JohnnyK.
