    Re: best 7mag powder

    Back when I started work on our Sendero, I went through several powders. I eventually settled on RL-19 as it provided the velocity I was looking for as well as sub MOA groups. However, as has been mentioned, it is noticiably temp sensitive, and as such I have since been looking at two other powders to try out. One being the Ramshot magnum which I have found to shoot very well in a friends 7mag, and the other is H-1000.

    My dad just bought a Tikka in a 7 mag. I'll be working up a load for it with the 150g Btip. I was thinking of trying both RL19 and 22, along with H-1000. I'll let ya'll know how it does. Soon as its not windy around this area anyways. I have to break the barrel in first though, damn it anyways, thats a long process [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    Rem 25-06 (a truly great round)
    Any results data yet? Like many shooters I have found IMR 4831 is good in my 7MM. But enough of me, it is your results with RLxx I am interested in. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Buff, i have always heard that the IMR powders provided awesome accuracy, but i was also told that they are temperature sensitive which will not work for me, it is 40 degrees in flagstaff, but 70+ down where i hunt in tucson. have you noticed anything like this with IMR?
    thanks!
