    I've had some luck with the 160gr Accubonds and Retumbo. I'm at 92 grains, but as always, start lower and work up. I never worked it up past 92 as it wasn't needed, so could possibly have gotten more without excess pressure. Good luck!

    With the 160, 162, and 168 grain offerings, Retumbo will serve you well. You should find acceptable accuracy between 91 and 93 grains. The poor quality Remington brass will not stand repeated firings with 93 or more grains, unless you want to use super glue to hold your primers in...

    I've not seen that rem brass is an issue in the 7rum, but I've only shot one of the 7rums out. Heck, most of the hundred rounds I shot in the 7rum got necked up to 30 cal and are still being shot in my 300rum.

    I gave up on retumbo when rl25 kicked its butt on 140 and 150 grain pills in the 7rum. My brother is doing well with retumbo with 150's in his 7rum, however.

    I'd look at 50bmg or mil- surp powder like wc872 or 5010 for 160-175 class pills in the 7rum.

    My load with 180 vld uses 87.2 gr Retumbo, Fed 215, Coal is 3.665 to get 3180 MV from a 26" tube. I can get .5 moa on a good day. Hope this helps.

    I shoot the 162 A-Max Moly 3.700 215GM Rem brass 93.5gr of Retumbo in a 700 LSS. This is a MAX LOAD in my rifle.

    Back it down 5gr and work your loads up for your rifle.

    There is a BIG difference at top loads using moly vs non-moly I use 162 A-Max's MOLY coated direct from Hornandy only.
