Need Powder advice on 7MM WSM

Hi,

Just got a 7MM WSM with 24" BBl. Wanted to shoot 160 gr. Accubonds.

Does anyone have any advice on what powder works with this combo?

Thanks,

Dee

I'm using H1000 with Berger 168's and 180's.

I'm sure you could use 4350 if you needed something faster burning.

My 7WSM loves H4831SC with the 160 grain accubonds. The H1000 was too slow in my 23 inch barrel Browning A-bolt.

H1000, 4831sc and RL 17 as well. Good luck finding any of these on the shelves! Gotta shoot what you can get these days.

I know some are getting great results with 4831sc and 162 Amax's, So I'm sure that powder would do you justice with the 160 AB's.

I am shooting H1000 along with 168 Bergers and it's good enough that I quit trying to better it.

I still want to try the 162 Amax / 4831 combo, but just haven't got to it yet.
