    Re: Anybody got a favorite 7mmRem load to share

    I've loaded for my dad's 7 mag for years and never found it to be finiky. I've tried 150BT's, 160 accubonds, and 160 Gamekings all shot well with H 4831sc. IMR 4350 works well too (as does R-22). He now uses 160 Accubonds with 65.5grs of H 4831sc in Win brass and Fed 215m primers. Averages .75 moa and just under 3000 fps. Shot a nice 4x4 bull last fall and it worked great.

    Re: Anybody got a favorite 7mmRem load to share

    Been playing with a 7RM this season and using 162gr SST and Amax molied, Rem brass, Fed 215M primers. Lee collet neck sized and bullets seated to fit in the mag of a Savage 110C.

    My best powders have been Re25 and IMR 7828. H1000 for me has been a dud. Want to try Retumbo if I can find some locally. Using max/near max book loads of either. The Re 25 worked better with the Amax. So far early testing wtih the IMR 7828 and SST's indicate a winner too.

    I chronied the Re25/Amax load and it went 3170fps. Toasty, YEP but shoots under 1/2" at 180yds. Brass has survived 4 reloads and counting.

    Continued to be very impressed with these Savage rifle. This one wears that horrid plastic stock but when free floated agressively and bedded (yes, you can bed these stocks), they run like champs. Maybe that stock isn't so horrid. This is my second factory Savage that shoots this well. I only own two.

    Will chrony the IMR loads shortly to compare.

    68 Grains of R22 under those 140 Accubonds should be a great load as well as 68 Grains of H4831. R22 has been the most consistent powder I've used in my 7RM.

    Good Luck!

    71grn,H-1000,CCI250 Primer,168Berger,WW brass=3060fps
    Same load for 160 Sierra game king.
    69.5grn,H-1000,CCI250 Primer,180Berger,WW brass=2950fps
    All of this is out of a Remington 700pss,26"barrel. Both loads shoot under1/2" at 100 yards. Got another mod 700 that loves 64grns of IMR 4350 an 160 Gamekings,24 in barrel. Same brass an primer. Haven't got any data for 140's. Hope this helps!

    Mine likes:

    Win Brass
    CCI 210s
    70 grains H1000
    168 gr Bergers 0.008" in the lands

    First three shots just the other day at 100 yds were one ragged hole.

    168 gr SMKs also worked well with the exact recipe from above jumping 0.042" to the lands.
