My 180 grain VLD load is 70 grains of Retumbo loaded at 3.430 OAL at 3060 out of a 28" Pac Nor and it is not compressed at all.

Pick up an Innovative Technologies Belted Magnum Collet Resizing Die. You'll get more loads, with less problems, than you thought possible in a belted magnum. I wish that I had discovered this years ago.
I've had really good luck with Reloader 22 behind 175gr boat tails. .

Re: 7mm Rem Mag Relaoding ?'s

my load is 73.5gr of H1000 under barnes TTSX 150gr bullets @ 3.380" lit with federal 215s. i dont have a chrono but i'm using 3240 fps in my shooter app and it match's perfectly out to 800 yards so it must be very close. also this is out of the factory 24" tube on a vanguard.

I use 7828 in mine from 5 deg F to over 90 deg. I have had very consistant groups. And no pressure spikes. But my gun is not yours
