I think you will find that R22 is better suited for the 160gr and lighter bullets. Stick with the Retumbo or H1000 with those 175's. I have had great results with IMR 7828 long cut version too, but found it to be a bit tempermental here in OR.

Re: Looking For 7mm Rem Mag Data

My Sierra manual is 3rd edition but it lists 64.5gr of H4831 with a Rem 91/2M primer as their hunting 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.
