7wsm and 162 amax

Just wondering if anybody has any data for this combo. I have searched a couple different forums and found some stuff, but was just wondering if anybody had anything they haven't posted before or didn't mind posting again. My gun will be done soon so I am trying to gather as much data as possible. The gun is a surgeon wsm short action with surgeon wsm bottom metal and a 26" krieger mtu contour. Thanks in advance for your help.

Colin

    I know of a few that love 64 grains of 4831sc and 162 A-max......I just haven't got around to trying it yet.

    I'll be testing them in the next week or so and will post my results. I also have a 26" barrel.

    h4831sc 65grs. with fed match mag primer or 65 RL-22 worked for me very well when I shot 162 amaxes. I now use 69grs. of RL-22 with a 168 berger in my new 7wsm match. I haven't played with any other powders because I have alot of RL-22.

    What kind of velocity did you get with 65gr of 4831sc, and what length barrel?

    Rockz - Ill be looking forward to seeing what you post. Have you been able to find any of the bullets lately?

    I got lucky and picked up a box. I have some on backorder with Cabelas as well.
    I'm using H1000 and hope to shoot some this week,
