    look there they have listing for h1000 with the 150 plus pills but, Iam sure that the load for the 150 grain will work with the 140

    Did not see powder load for a 7 mm Rem Mag, 145 grain.

    if you are loading 145 grn you can use a 150 grain listing. But never go the other way the preasure build will not be plesant and may be dangerous.

    i doubt you'll find a berger manual on store shelves yet, their available on bergers website

    4350-4831 for 140-150 bullets

    h1000- rl22 for 160-168gr

    magnum, retumbo for 175+ bullets

    My current 7RM load:

    R-P case
    F210 GMM primer
    H4831sc @ 65.0 grains
    Nosler 140 Accubond
    AOL = 3.362" (at lands)

    This load will shoot sub MOA (right at 2/3's MOA for me so far) at 100 and 200 yards.

    Clocks just under 3100 FPS from my 26" barrel.

    Worked on one 8pt buck this fall


    I've also used H1000 in the past in my 7RM using a Nosler 150 BT. Had excellent results with it as well. Shot Sub-MOA, and accounted for a 7pt buck.


    Regards,

    Rog

    Since a 7mm rm is capable of 3350+fps with a 140grn pill in a 26" barrel, and accurately I might add. Why do you run them under 3100? I just saw some of the last data posted up, why waste powder in a 7mag when a 280rem/284win will do that with less powder in a 24" barrel.
