7mm RM load

Looking for a 400-600 yard 7mm RM load...shooting 160gr bullet using either H4831 or RL22 powder. Going to be shooting in a 26" barrel. I want something with power and speed. What have you guys found??

Re: 7mm RM load

Here's a recent thread...
7mm Rem. Mag. load help

Mine likes both the 168gr and 180gr Bergers with h4831sc and RL22. I use Fed GM215M primers and Norma brass. I never had a reason to try anything else.

Re: 7mm RM load

I used nothing but RL 22 and the 160 accubond for a few years. Accuracy was great, but velocity topped out at 2820 in my factory Rem 700 with a 24" barrel.
Was about to order a custom barrel when a friend of mine suggested trying RL 25, and i'm sure glad i did.
3000 fps and 3/4" 3-shot groups at 200 yards!! Not exactly benchrest accuracy, but pretty good for a stock hunting rifle. Was able to go up to 3050 fps safely, but groups started to open up noticeably.
