Re: velocity?

~2900. Go with a faster powder and you will see higher velocities.

Re: velocity?

my chrono read about 2800 but i wasn't sure to quite trust that. havent shot the retumbo through it yet but the h1000 seemed low to me

Re: velocity?

I loaded 56 grains of H4831 behind the 168berger in my 280rem with 24" barrel and got 2750.

I'm not sure what the go-to powders are for the 7rem mag but if all you're getting with Retumbo or H1000 is 2800, you need to go to a faster powder like H4831. I would want a 7mag to send the 168s at darn near 3000.

Perhaps increase the charge of H4831 in order to increase velocity? or is this load a max load you don't want to exceed?
