Anybody got a favorite 7mmRem load to share

I've got a 7mm that I need to make up some reloads for
the guy want good velocity and accuracy (don't we all) with a 140gr Accu-bond.
Anybody have a favorite powder for this caliber?
Its a 26" barrel

    Re: Anybody got a favorite 7mmRem load to share

    Well I have two favorite powders for this cal. First is the old faithful RL 22, and the second is IMR 4831. Many people are liking the H 4831 SC these days but I haven't used any yet. My best accuracy came with 150gr. Nosler BT's backed by 61gr. of IMR 4831. But you might want to try some of the Sierra Matchking 175's they are SWEET. I am having excellent results with them. Sorry but I havn't got a load for the 140 accubond yet.

    Good Luck and you can't go wrong with RL22 and IMR4831. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    I'm a fan of H4831sc. I'm loading 63.5gr behind a 150gr NBT and CCI Primer.

    I recently shot the ladder test for the first time with some IMR4831 and was very encouraged by the results. I'm still in load development and don't have any loads to share as of yet......

    If you could stabilize it the 162gr A-max has a incredibly high bc. I think around .620. Hornady recommends a 1-9 twist for this so good luck. The bullet is a very light jacket so it wouldn't be much good for anything real big, but I bet it would kick butt on some long range whitetails or antelope.

    Good Luck

    Re: Anybody got a favorite 7mmRem load to share

    Bullet: 150Ggr Nosler BT
    Powder: R-22 67.5gr
    Case: Wichester W-W
    Primer: Rem mag

    This is the most accurate load I have found for my LSS and a friends rifle. It will shoot .5@ 100 yards when I am on top of my game avg. .75 Velocity is around 3100 out of my 24' tube. This load is near MAX in my gun start at 65gr and work up to 68gr. As for the 140gr Accubond start at 62gr and work up to 69.5 MAX. The BT load is absolutly devastating on Whitetails and stay off the shoulders. The Accubonds hold up a bit better. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    Bullet: 162Ggr A-Max
    Powder: H4831SC 66.0gr
    Case: Wichester W-W
    Primer: Rem mag

    This load shoots great also and is in the high 3000fps range


    Bullet: 175gr Nosler Partition
    Powder: IMR-4350 58.5gr
    Case: Wichester W-W
    Primer: Rem mag

    This Partition load is one of my Faves hits like a hammer and will hold a group just under an inch in the 2900fps range.

    If you need any more data let me know Ive done a bit of testing with 7Mag. Good Luck [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    JD,
    I load 150gr NBT and Scirocco with 67.0gr RL22 & CCI BR2's. Velocity runs 3100-3150fps with accuracy below .5". Shoots like a dream in my Sendero. Johnny K.
