7SAUM and Berger 168gr VLD Hunting Bullet... What powder?
I have a 7SAUM with a 22" barrel that shoots the 140gr Accubond very well but I want something that will reach way out there.
I see that Berger offers a 168gr 7mm VLD Hunting bullet that shoots well in 9 twist bores and I'm pretty sure that's what I have.
The only rub is that I've been using Varget powder for my 140's but they don't list a Varget load for a 168gr bullet.
I have looked at the Hodgdon website and they have several powders and loads but before I went out and bought powder I thought I'd ask for some guidance here.
Pet loads? Powders used?
If it's long it can't be wrong... LDHunter (Long Distance Hunter) from the Piney Woods of NW Florida. I hunt clearcuts for scrawny whitetails... ;)
