Powder Selection for 7MM RM 168 VLD

Wondering what powder would be good for the 168 VLDs. I hunt in MN and ND so the temperature and weather can be all over the board. H1000 seems like a popular powder that I want to try but have no idea how consistent it is with varying temperatures. Shooting through a 24" barrel with 1:9.5 twist.

I have had very good luck with H4831 in the 7mm RM and 168 grain bullets for 1000 yard
match shooting.

You can also use the Newer H 4831 SC .

H1000 is one of Hodgdon's extreme powders, Stability in wide temp swings is what it's designed to deal with, thats what the "Extreme" on the bottle stands for. and Hodgdon has done a fairly good job with making them temp stable

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.
