Re: Reloader 25 with 168 berger bullet

After many hours, I have finally came up with an awesome load for the Reloader 25. 7mm Remington mag with 168 berger hunting bullet. I bought the reloader 25 to try, and did not want to waste it. And now I am very happy with the results.

Reload Data: Remington case, Rem mag 9 1/2 primer.

67 grains Reloader 25 and OAL with bullet comparator is 2.584.

With this load I was able to break clay pigeons @ 300yds, and 400yds.

I glue clay pigeons to paper plates with hot glue, and place them out. With this laod I hit every time shooting off a bulls bag. Very happy with the load.

RL25 was the best powder, velocity and accuracy wise, that I ever used in my old 7 mag for 168 Bergers and 160 Accubonds. Kinda kicking myself for trading it off.

With this load this year, I shot a black tail buck at 325 yards. The buck instantly droped in its spot. I was using a balistic plex scope. 300 yard pin right behind the shoulder. It hit exacally were I was aiming. I love Berger bullets.

What velocity is your load producing?? I'm thinking of stepping into another load for my 7mag and already have rl25 on the shelf.

I am not sure what velocity it is producing. I have not had it checked by a chonigraph yet.

Re: Reloader 25 with 160 berger bullet

I found it was OK for the 168s but liked Retumbo better. R25 is a different animal; you really have to be careful with it. I recently tried it in my 340 Wby and it topped out at 2860 while I was able to get 3200 with other powders! In the 257 Wby, it is the best powder I have found with 115 Bergers.

I don't shoot 168s in the 7 anymore- only 180s. I find them more accurate and better wind resistance. I use Ramshot Magnum with them.
