Re: 7remmag w/ 150 mks, load ?


I used them in my SFII a little during initial break-in. They shoot well with H4350 and H1000 in that particular rifle. I was just using mild loads(mid range) and only pushing them about 2850-2900 fps. Groups in the .4 range at 100, not too bad for a new factory tube.

I'd say you may get a great combo with either 4350s, R22, H1000, IMR7828, or H4831.

Good Luck

If your just using them for break in that's fine. But if you are looking for a long range round go for the 168 smk or 175 or the 168 vld or 180 from berger. There b.c.'s are much higher.

Yep, I'd go with the 168 or 180 VLD, or the 175g SMK, or even the 162g AMAX (.625 BC)

168g SMK still has a relatively low BC compared to the above 4 bullets...
