Re: Powders for 7mm Remington Magnum

Considering you will more than likely have a reasonable shot at a moose (under 300), I'd juice that 175 as fast as possible with reasonable accuracy. Reloder 22 is one of my all time favorite powders for accuracy and speed. I recommend it also, or maybe even try the Re25.

I've had really good luck with IMR7828ssc with the heavies, and R17 with the lighter bullets.

My suggestion would be RL19, but ONLY for charges below 70gr. For anything above that, it would be wise to go up to RL22. It's also advisable to develop max loads using these powders under the warmest temperature conditions expected to be encountered.

Magpro does well also.

I'm surprised LTLR didn't also say Ramshot Magnum or Retumbo, these 2 also do well under 175-180 grainers with great charge density. For the sake of being the most stable I use Retumbo with fed215s or cci 250s.

Re: Powders for 7mm Remington Magnum

Backwoods, I agree those are good but they had been mentioned so I mentioned another that does very well in that size case from 257 to 30 caliber. It just seems to hit it's niche right in there. Slow burning, ball powder with consistent burn and low vel spreads with cartridges in that range.

Re: Powders for 7mm Remington Magnum

I have used 70g H1000 with 168 vlds. That load gave an ES of 7 with a mv of 3000fps and awesome groups. But it seemed to dirty the barrel a lot. So when the local shop (Alberta tactica) got viht n560 in I tried it with a worked up load of 66 gr gave 3050 with a 5 shop group of 1.5" at 350 I kept it. Viht is more expensive but les powder over time and easier on brass (Norma at $2.50 a piece here) is good for me.

Work up to everything. Don't dive in to those loads.but the viht is definitely less pressure.
