No, it is one of Hodgdon's extreme powders.

No, H1000 is not a temp sensative powder, from my experiences.

rl 22, h1000, imr 7828 all 3 are in my opinion your best choices. BUT, donot use amax bullets for hunting! They are for target not for hunting. They would do good for gophers, ground hog, jack rabbit but no way will you be happy with wounded deer, elk bear or moose.

Re: 7mm Rem Mag Rem 700 Sendero load?

Anybody using large rifle primers instead of mag? I have a thousand Sellier and Belliot (sorry about the spelling) and thought I might develop a load(s) with them. I have H1000, Rl22 and 7828...

+1 on the amax, but don't shoot deer or bigger with it.

mag primers are the choice for 7mmrm. Std. primers will do but, to get the best most reliable performance from high expantion ratio calibers you do need the extra boost from mag primers

+1
Especially if you have plans to use the rifle in extremely cold conditions. If you are always 70 and sunny, you may get by with a standard with many powders, but I won't do it up here where it may be 70 one weekend and 0 the next.

Re: 7mm Rem Mag Rem 700 Sendero load?

Thanks for the advise on the amax. I currently use 7828 in my 270 wby mag but I hear it is a bit temperature sensitive. Should I try 7828 in my 7mm or should i just go out and get h1000?
