Visit 6mmbr website and they have a page dedicated to load info this caliber as well as others. I've had great success with 140 bergers and H4831sc. Good luck.

H4831SC under the 140s is an amazing combo for sure. As far as I'm concerned there's only one primer for that combo. Remington 9-1/2. It's the only one I found that would get me in the magical single digit extreme spread range. 210Ms got me there with H4350 but not with 4831.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Interesting Michael. I consistently logged extreme spreads in the teens with 210m/H4831sc and single digits with 210m/Retumbo. 3/8" groups with H4831sc and 1/2"to 5/8" groups with the "warmer" Retumbo load. Never used the Rem 9 1/2.

.002" with 142smks or 140 amax. Your caliber isn't too picky. It's my most boring gun. No load development and easy

.000-.002 jump with the 140 VLD has been the sweet spot for me.
