    Im using a 7mm Remington mag
    OAL 3.280 Remington Brass
    154 gr. soft point hornady interlock's
    GM215M Large Magnum Primers
    Hodgdon Hybrid 100 V powder

    It groups well, ten minutes in between shots. One shot, at a time. If I take three in a row, they are scattered, on the board. Any suggestions, if it is my primers or too much powder?

    Sounds like a really thin barrel. Look at it this way though, at least you know your cold bore shots are going to be dead on.

    And or possibly a bedding concern, is your barrel free floated....
