    Re: What is your favorite 7MM REM Mag Load?

    I have spent many hours this spring working up a load for my Browning bbr in 7mm rem mag. I have settled on

    CCI 250
    Winchester Brass
    h1000
    Berger vld 168's

    I shoot 5 shot groups only. 3 shot groups are b.s. to me. After extensively playing with the seating depth the load I have will do 7/8" all day long.

    Next year I might try retumbo to see if I can improve things a bit. I would like to try rl22 but am afraid of the temperature sensitivity.

    I have tried both H1000 and RL22 with 168gr Barnes LRX in 7mm and the H1000 was more accurate by a long shot. I was also getting more velocity from the H1000 as well. Without looking at my data I dont recall the difference but I do remember it was significant.

    Not yet.....I finally got 1 lb of it sitting on the bench to try. My local store finally got a shipment of powder in, and I saw some of that sitting on the shelf, figured I'd give it a try. I haven't loaded any yet.

    I will say my 2 favorite calibers are 300 Win Mag, and the 7mm Rem Mag. They are so pleasant to shoot. I have a T/C Encore 7mm and 300 and also 2 Weatherbys in 7mm Mag.
    I load the Sierra 140 SPT in Winchester brass, Fed LR primers, and 62.3 grs of IMR 4350. Not quite as steady as the years in the Army but still do good and have fun.
