7mm Rem Mag Rem 700 Sendero load?

Whats a good load for my newly acquired 7mm rem mag in remington 700 sendero II?

I plan on using 162 Amax or 168 Bergers? It seems the Amax has a bit better ballistics.

I plan to hunt deer size game with this rifle.

Any generally known loads for this rifle?

thank you

Yep, using retumbo with the 171 barnes myself in a remmy in 7mag. I'll use I 7828 or rl22 with mid weight pills (140- 150gr.) in this cal. though.

I'm using RL22 with 168 Bergers.

The load I've settled on for the rest of the year takes 19.5 MOA to get to 1000 and will shoot 0.6 MOA 5 shot groups if I call the wind correctly.
