Looking For 7mm Rem Mag Data

I just picked up a box of .284 175gn Sierra Gamekings but can't find load data anywhere if anyone has a Sierra manual I am looking for Retumbo and Re 22 data for 7mm Rem Mag.

Thanks

    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.

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