    I would imaging the same powders that work well in the 7WSM and 7-300WSM. So RE-25, and H1000 would be a good place to start. H1000 should yield better barrel life and RE-25 a little higher velocities.

    I/ve had outstanding accuracy with 57.5 grs. of 4831sc and the Berger 180 vld,the drawback's are velocity from 27.5 in. barrel is about 2800 fps and load density is not too good.

    H4831SC, RL-22, RL-25, H1000 all work in the 7mm WSM combos (270, 7mm, 300) as well as teh 7SAUM.
