    That combination is hard to beat. you can also try some H4831! I like Hodgson powder better (seems to shoot cleaner).

    AJ and Willys nailed it right on the head. Hard to beat the 160 gr Accubond, works well from up close to quite a ways out there.

    Those are also the first two powders I tried for my 7 SAUM (baby 7 mag). I stuck with the Re 22 just because I got a little more velocity.

    160g AB's and Rl-22 is a great start. Shoots very good from my 700 in 7 RM.

    For the bear go with 175 grain SGK loaded with 61 grains of RL-22 which should put you at 2900 ft./s muzzle and 3,269 ft. lbs at 600 yds you will be looking at 76” drop bullet going 1,926 ft/s and 1,442 ft. lbs, this should take care of the teddy. (avoid gut shots) for a bamby 175 grain at 600 yards will do as well, going with lighter bullet will decrease impact energy but you will win few feet on ft./s, both creatures wouldn’t know a difference Jgood luck
    P.S
    Going with 160 grain bullet at 600 yards will make 70” drop speed will decrease from 3,075 ft/s muzzle to 1,914 ft./s and energy will be at 1302 ft. lbs, so 175 grain is a way to go, but if your target within 0-300 yards use 160 grain bullet, +300 yards is the break point where 160 grain will loose energy over 175 grain and +500 yard is where speed will dissipate over 175 grain bullet.

    Great set up/ load. I've got a similar gun and it is 1/2MOA out to 300 for sure.

    I find my best accuracy is around 2950.

    64g RL22 or N560 with 168g Berger shoots well
    Accubond..... I'll have to check.
