Alright guys, heres the scoop. I traded my 300 RUM for a 7mm rem mag. Its my 3rd one, I think I'll be keeping this one. Its a Rem 700 BDL wood/blued. I need to get the trigger worked on as its a newer model and I cant seem to break those seals of god on the newer models. I intend to shoot either the 162g amax, 168g vld,smk, or 175g smk, 180g vld. I'm thinking I should stick with the 160 weights. Just wondering if anyone has any loads they would share with some target bullets. I might try a 160g AB, but thats really on the backburner as far as bullets. I will be topping it off with my Leupold MK4, 4.5-14x50 LR/T. It should be what I'm looking for now. Good 1000 yard rifle for targets, deer, coyotes, and will be a good 800 yard rifle for elk and bears. I wont be burning 95g of powder anymore either, more like 65g. Thank god. Need to get that trigger worked down to about 2lbs, then start finding a load. First bullet on hand is 168g vld's. My dad has a box of them and I think I"ll borrow some. Whats the top powders for velocity, accuracy, and consistency? Not to much experience with 7 mag, I've owned 2 previously, but did not own them long enough to shoot anything with them. Thanks.
