searching for 7mm RM 162 BTSP powder

I have used Accurate "Magnum Rifle" powder and can't find it anymore (discontinued). The container says it is compatable to IMR 4831, Hodgson 4831 and Accurate 3100. I have had great success with the "Magnum Rifle" powder and need to either find some old or go with something new. I mostly hunt whitetail, elk, and mulies and shoot from 50 to 500 yards. Thanks in advance.

Re: searching for 7mm RM 162 BTSP powder

I used 4831 for years and it worked well. I've since switched to RL-22 and it works even better. I use non-magnum primers, just straight old Rem 9 1/2 primers, I've had tighter groups since going to non mag primers with my 7mm Rem Mag.


If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
