7mm ULTRA/180gr Berger Loads

Hi all,

Just bought a box of 180gr VLDs for my 7mm Ultra. Does anybody have any pet loads for this bullet/cartridge combo? The rifle is a stock Remington CDL with a 26" bbl. I've had really good luck with the 160gr Accubonds but I wanted something a little heavier.

Thanks,

Hicks

That is some good info, thanks. Question: H870 is no longer being produced, correct? If so, does anybody have any good loads with other current slow powders?

Both US 869 and H50 BMG work well, the H50 BMG is less temp sensitive. Start with 92.0 gr of H50 BMG or 94 gr US 869 and work up from there.

Hicks, this info came right from Berger and as it should seems a little conservative to me.
