Re: Powder burn rate

Magnum Maniac,

Thanks, I haven't really been able to duplicate the accuracy of the Hornady factory ammo. I thought I would try the Berger VLD because I've heard all of the good reviews about there long range capablilities but they didn't shoot well with the the gun I loaded them for. I finally got it to about 1/2" at 100 yards after about a 100 rounds and several different loads but didn't see much improvement out to 300. So thats why I'm going to try the Hornady bullets again. I keep telling myself that I will build a long range set up but I haven't really found them very useful in the field.

    I shoot a 7mmRM too and the best powder for velocity and accuracy with the Hornandy 162gr BTSP is RL-22. I'm shooting a Browning A-bolt. At least in my rifle it works well. Your's could be totally different.

    I going to try the RL-22. I'm thinking about going back to the factory ammo because of the accuracy I had with this gun but I will have to try this load. Thanks
