I am interested in 160 Accubonds which are the longest bullets that could fit in the magazine. My guess is that R-25, VV N-165, H-1000, Ramshot Magnum, Magpro would be the velocity winners with 160 gr bullets. I spoke with the late Bruce Hodgdon about H-1000. He had the powder made for 160 gr bullets in the 7mm Remington Mag.
What powders from my list can you eliminate and what is the criteria that you used?
Are you referring to the M70 Extreme Weather? I was looking at this rifle myself. I finally was able to get my hands on it tonight...although in a different caliber. I just wanted to get a feel for it in my hands. I have been seriously looking at the 7wsm. My only concern is that I would like to shoot shoot the 160 accubonds, and the 168 bergers, and be able to seat them no farther then 0.020 off the lands, and I am wondering if they will still fit in the magazine...or this will turn into a one shot down the pipe as I need it kind of deal.
Has anyone run into issue with them fitting in the magazine, and still being able to have them close to the lands, or right up against as I think the bergers require?
