I also have a Savage 7mm wsm built by Kevin Rayhill that shoots awesome. 66g of Retumbo behind the 168g Berger VLD shoots 1/2 groups. You may want to try working up loads with other powders. Good Luck

What twist rate? That could be another issue.

Re: Berger question

And try different seating depth. Just because 1 bullets shoots well at 1 distance off the lands doesn't mean any other bullet will. My personal experience has been that 0.020 off the lands is usually a good place to start. There really are no good shortcuts to working up a load.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
