    My Win 70 7WSM doesn't like H1000, but does like H4831SC. I have not tried the the 168, only the 140s.

    With 168g Bergers my rifle likes 66g Retumbo & Fed 215m primers. Shoots sub 1/2" groups. Hope this helps.gun)

    We've had good luck with 4831SC. Current load is at 67.5g 4831SC with either a 162 amax or Berger VLD, although you may want to start a fair bit lower and work up. Not sure how long the brass is going to last, but it sure shoots good:D

    I tried both H1000 and H4831SC in my 7WSM (26" barrel) and Berger 168VLD, and got better velocity (only by a little) and better accuracy with the H4831SC. Only way to tell which will work better in your gun is to try both.

    Well,it turned out H1000 was the winner. Right around .5 or so at 100.....these and the Amaxs shoot right with each other, so I have a dilemma....and they both shoot Same POI...

    Move on out to your max range and see if they still group the same. If they do, buy the cheapest.

    What is your twist rate? H1000 has been my choice and I just polished off an 8lb jug with no loss of accuracy in my 7/300
