Re: 7MM WSM loads-help needed

I've had great results with 4831SC and it HAS produced 3,000+ fps for me and I'm only at 800ft ASL. Here is my load info:

Surgeon 591 7wsm
24" Bartlein 1:9
168VLD

62.9gr of H4831SC
Avg: 3,032 @ 85*
SD: 5fps/ 7fps
ES: 14fps
3.212" measured off the Ogive

I've shot this load for a while now and it's been verified on steel out to 1,200yds and fur out to 780yds.

I switched from RL22 to 4831SC due to temp issues with the RL22 in the summer time.

Re: 7MM WSM loads-help needed

I am shooting 64g of 4831 SC in my 7WSM. I went with the 168 Berger Hunting Hybrids. They have shot great and are much easier to work up. Velocity is at 2950 and I am getting 1/2 or less MOA. The BC difference is very samll, I think it is .617 versus .604 and take much less time and effort to develope. I got the load information from Berger and their recommendation was a max load of 64.8g of powder. The best result for me was 64g. If I went towards 65 the groups widened. I am loading them at the lands. By the way, I am shooting at about 700 feet above sea level. Dense humid air.

I'm using Win brass with very little prep and my rifle shoots excellent.
