7mm RM loads

Just looking for a bit of help...I have a Win M70 in 7mm Rem Mag that shoot 168 Bergers very well when seated to just off the lands. The problem is that the rounds are too long for the magazine at this COL and I don't want a single shot while hunting. I have tried seating to fit the mag but accuracy has suffered. I have been using RL22 and Retumbo, 215Match, and all the typical case prep. I am thinking I may try different bullets but was not sure what brand. Has anyone had good luck with a particular bullet seated well off the lands? Thanks.

Re: 7mm RM loads

Better go buy a Rem 700 7mm mag Just kidding.
, My rem700 can take bullets longer than my lands anyway though. Mine shot rl22 best close to the land like you, but it shoots h1000 amazingly well and i'm about .1 or more off the lands...might be worth trying a couple different powders...i've had success with h4831sc farther from the lands as well. These are all with the 168 berger as well...i love that bullet.

One to try might be the 162 Amax, i'm not sure how much shorter it is, but it is a little shorter and has an amazing BC as well. I really like the 150 sierra hpbt match, but i haven't hunted with it, I know it's not intended for hunting but i haven't researched how they perform on deer or elk, you know guys have tried it haha.

My OAL is 3.336 using 168 VLD's, in both of my Remingtons. The box is longer on Remys. My son has a Winchester 70' and shoots the same OAL , and it fits in the mag. In my remy, it is .040 off of the riflings. His gun likes the Bergers, but loved the 162 A- Max. My load is 67.5 - H1000 - 168 VLD @ 3.336 , and using WLR primers. You really don't need mag primers in a seven mag, or a 300 win mag for that matter. Hope this helps.

You might try reading and following the 2nd "STICKY" on this "reloading thread". I have seen this method work!
