Remington 7mm Sendero pet loads

Looking for some help with a Remington Sendero 7mm sf

Can't seem to get below a 1in to 1.5 groups at 100yards. Trigger has been adjusted to 2.0 pounds, after inspection crown was a little rough(had gun smith fix). Also made sure stock was torqued down to 65in pounds (according to HS precision stocks). This gun will be mainly used for hunting.

I'm sure the list is a mile long of things to impove accuracy. Maybe with some good pet loads it will come together. I have reloader 22, Imr 4831, and also H4831sc, been trying to get Remtumbo but no luck so far. Any help will be helpful. Thanks!!!

    Try H 1000 and Berger VLD's. That's what I have mine loaded with. It will 1 moa @ 100 for the first 3 shots and then starts to walk twards the 2 oclock on the target. I guess that is due to the barrel warming up. Then again if you can't get the job done in 3 shots maybe I should work on my shooting and not load data

    I'll look when I get home and see what I'm using that could help you. Most of my loads are Reloder 19 or Reloder 22, since I have a fair bit of that at the house. I haven't tried any with H1000 yet. I might move on to that next.

    162 hornady SST, h1000 69 grains or 68 retumbo

    Both shoot well at 300 yards 1 1/2 or better


    The sst's are easier to shoot than the bergers. The bergers require some time and effort with the seating depth but they will shoot well

    +1

    Great luck with both SST and AMAX 162's and H1000.

    Thanks for the help!! I'll try the Berger vlds again, I don't think I had them close enough to the lands the last couple of times. I got some 162 sst's today. Thanks!!

    I've always shot the 140 sierra with enough rl22 under them to hit 3200 fps in a 7rem. A good 150 grain bt like a nos or sierra with either rl22 or 7828 under it would do you well too. I'm sure either h4831 or h1000 would do well too if you swing that way.
