7MMremmag. Berger vs Matchking?

Got my new gun. Going to begin load development shortly. Read alot about bob bullets. Both seem to be very accurate from what I have read. Which is the best? Give your reasons why you like one over the other.
Also, does the matching need the attention to getting just the right distance off the lands like the Bergers? Sounds like some people have gotten frustrated in the past trying to get the Bergers to shoot.

Also, I think I will go with h-1000, CCI-200 primers and Remington brass.

Thanks guys.

What kind of groups are you shooting? Did you work up the Bergers like they say? (just touching the lands)

Just my opinion, and I know with some calibers we have no choice, but Remington is the last brass I would use. I loaded it for 10 years then went to Winchester. In the last 5 years I've used Norma, WW, Lapua, and Federal in my various calibers. I'm on a batch of 500 Nosler 7mm Rem Mag currently. It does well.

my bigger groups are 3/4" . I load them 010. offl the lands. i just started low and worked up. 59.0 grains . the small groups are .2 .3 .4 at 100 yards with the bergers. i found that the 215gm gave me higher velocity. greater exteme spread. the i could almost use interchangeably. i would not use a non magnum primer .

Mine wouldn't shoot either one, but shoots the Hornady A-max well. It's comparable to the other two. I use H-1000 and winchester brass.

I never could get the Berger pills to shoot in my rifles---use the SMK's now for all of my competition (except the 66.7 gr 6mm fb's) shooting and almost all of my hunting.
