7mm RM and H1000

Anyone have experience (good experience preferred) with H1000 and 160 gr. accubonds? Have Rem Sendero SFII 7mmRM with 26" Hart 1-10 twist barrel, Win brass, Fed 215 primers. I have read some good things about reloader 22, but am hoping to find a good load with the H1000 for the temp. insensitivity, but maybe that's not that big of a concern.
Thanks for any help.
TB

7RM

TB,

I'm a big fan of R22 in my 7RMs and have never seen the bad effects or instability often mentioned. That said, Another great powder with the 160s is 7828, may want to give it a whirl. 7828 under 162 Amaxes works well in my SFII.

Good Luck

A second vote for R-22 with 160s in the 7mmRM. You can put more of a slower powder in the case, like H1000 or 7828, but you probably wont net any more velocity. On the other hand, they'll likely give you as much velocity, and I'd just choose the one that shot the best. Again though, you'll find an awful lot of people burning R-22 in the 7mmRM. There's got to be a reason.

I have shot both RL-22 and H1000 in my 7mm Rem Mag.. I started with H1000 some years ago when I first got my gun. I had good experience with it shooting 175 gr Hornady SP. I found sometime later that the load I was using was about 5 grs above the recommended max load. I still shoot some 160 Accubonds with H1000 and get very good accuracy and velocity.

I gave RL-22 a try a couple of years ago and found that I could use the same amount of powder for the 160 Accubonds and 160 TSX bullets with close to the same point of impact and almost the same velocity and also with great accuracy(for me).

I think that either will work for you. Your gun may like one over the other.

I like something different with the 160-162g...

in the 7 Mags, using Rem brass with a 9 1/2 primer, usually 61.0g of IM R 4350 with the bullet just kissing the lands is not only very fast, but accurate as well. I have shot this load in many Rem 700's, one BAR, and one A bolt. If your gun will shoot the 162g SST, they are very wicked on deer.

I like R#22 also, but have seen some WILD temp swings in shooting from 75* to 35* as seen in my Ohler 35P.

The 120g Barnes Tripple shock will shoot a hole length ways through any deer walking at 3600 fps with less than 1/2" accuracy with R#22.

I think h1000 is a little slow with that bullet weight. I would try retumbo.

H1000 works great in my long-throated 7WSM (nearly the same case capacity), but I'm using either the Berger 180s or teh Sierra 175s. I used to use RL-25,but had some pressure issues in the Vegas summer. I agree that RL-22 and Retumbo will owrk well for your application.
