I did 62 grains of imr 7828. I think max load for 150 berger with imr7828 is 62.9 grains. this is from berger manual.
will see how they shoot this weekend and report back.

Thanks for the info guys. Mooseknuckles, I don't have any of the 7828 powder, but I'm sure others will be interested in your results.

Just a follow up report for those interested in this combo. I ended up with 67.5 gr of H1000, then did seating depth testing per Berger's recommendations, ended up at .080 off the lands. Confirmed the load on 3 separate trips to the range, repeatable 1/2" or less groups at 100 yds.
