7mm Rem and retumbo .714 @200 Yards

I was re-checking zero on my long range hunting rifle and test a few loads, I got a nice 200 yard group of .714
rifle is a Mauser 98 commercial I built with Pacnor Super match barrel, and Huskemew Optic, Caliber 7mm Rem



not a bad group, but need to crono it

You should be in the 2900-2950 range as far as speed goes, if you are running a 26 inch barrel. I have had great luck with H1000 also,@ 67.5 grains, WLR primer, @ 3.336 OAL. That yields 2977, and extremely accurate, and always consistent. Good shootin'.
