    I will assume it is the Berger 168gr. Hunting VLD. Is this a compressed load? Thanks for the info.

    In my 7rm 7828 is good for 140, great for 150 and back to good for 162
    rl22 is poor with 140 and 150, better than 7828 for 162, and awsome with 175
    I haven't yet tryed h1000 but will as soon as I can get my hands on some

    I would bet it is 168gr, Berger's listed max for 180gr with Retumbo is 69.2gr, 70.4gr is pretty hot.
    For 168gr, max by Berger for Retumbo is 71.2 at 106% so 70.4gr would likely be slightly compressed.

    I put together a load using 58.5gr. H4831SC, Norma brass, Fed. 210 primer, 168gr. Berger VLD, 3.390" oal. Shoots under 1/2" group at 200 yds. Didn't chrony yet. I doubt it is a barn burner.

    This is my most accurate load for my LSR 7mmRM, so far.
