    My load is 68 grains of Retumbo, .010 off the lands, WW case, Fed 215M primer. This gives me 3166 fps out of my Rem CDL, and shoots under an inch at 100 yards, if I do my part.

    Ramshot Magnum, H1000, US869, Retumbo, all work well. 215M or 215 primer.

    69 gr. of h1000 .006 into the lands gets about 3220 fps and 1/4"

    I have not tried the 140 VLD but the 130 Accubond and 66.5 grs Retumbo really shots in my rifle. 27 3/4" barrel 3350 fps.

    I cannot get that velocity with my 28 inch Krieger barrel. 66.5 gr of Retumbo will get me slightly over 3200 fps with 140 gr Berger Hybrids. Fed 215 primers. I would check the level on your sensors when you set up your chronograph. My guess it is not level and thus your distance is less than 2 feet when you shoot over it.

    I started again with Retumbo and H1000 this is what I got so far.

    Retumbo
    Winchester Brass resized from 7mm Remington Magnum Brass
    Federal 215M
    OAL 3.300
    70 grains
    3,125 fps no pressure sign*

    H1000
    Winchester Brass
    Federal 215M
    OAL 3.300
    69.5 grains
    3,073 fps no pressure signs

    Retumbo seems to heat the barrel up pretty quick and H1000 just feels warm. Ill going to see if I can raise it a little more and then see how they shoot I will post those results.
