I have a Savage 110 chambered in 7mm Remington Ultra Mag w/ 26 inch barrel. I've had the reciever and action trued by a good gunsmith. I'm still shooting the factory stock but I bedded the rifle with marine tex. The factory savage trigger has been stoned and feels good. EGW scope mount and Nikon 3-9 Buckmasters scope. I've been trying to put the least amount of money into the gun as possible. I feel I've done the minimum needed to help make this gun a shooter. Now I need a good load. So far I've loaded up some Hornady 154 gr Soft Points with Hodgdon Retumbo powder. My starting load was 90 grains and my max was 96 grains. So far, 90 gr load, 3450 fps 2.5 inch 3 shot group 96 gr load, 3574 fps 2.5 inch 3 shot group 93 gr load, 3493 fps 3 inch 3 shot group Can I expect the same performance with the other loads in between? I just bought some Sierra gameking 175 gr SBT bullets, because I figure the longer boat tail bullet will perform better. My goal is to shoot a deer at 600 yards (if the shot presents itself) So I want at least a one inch group at 100 yards. Does anyone see anything wrong with what I'm doing or know of any pet loads I can use to speed this process of finding a good load for this thing?
