    When I shot long rang NRA matches (900/1000 and 1100yrds
    I used a 7mm rem mag with a 29" barrel and got 3254fps
    using 67.5 grs H4831 and a 168gr smk- rem 91/2 primers

    NOTE: This was a very hot load and brass life was 2
    firings so start at 63 or 64grs

    I used 66.5grs in hot weather

    Never tried H4831sc but it should work well
    and it,s easy to measure.

    Standard deviation was 9

    Good luck and be safe

    I was using the max load listed in the Sierra book with RL 19 and getting 2975 out of a Abolt with about 3/4" groups at 200m.
