    You should try - 168gr MK and 64+grs of H4831 and a 9 1/2 Mag rem primer for targets.

    For hunting use the 160gr Accubond and the H4831 or H4831sc.

    Start low and work up.

    My 7mm RM Remmy also likes 160 AB over 70.5 g Ramshot Magnum over
    Fed 210 primer.

    Your mileage may differ.

    i have two 7mm senderos. both shoot real good. i use nosler brass, 168 berger, 63 of re 19. but they shoot everything good to great. have you adjusted the trigger? and a muzzle break helps me a lot.

    What have you tried so far?

    My 7 mag loves RL-22 with any bullet I put in it. Haven't really messed with to many other powders besides Retumbo. Retumbo definately showed a velocity increase, but not as good accuracy wise. I didn't mess with it to much though as RL22 shot 1/2 MOA with at least 6-7 bullets.

    My 7 RM is just a rem 700 BDL custom deluxe w/holland brake and trigger work w/leupold 6-18 w/turrets. Nothing special, but it shoots ridiculously well for a factory sporter...

    you don't need 168 berger unless you shooting 600 yards or 1000 . i have had great success out to 600 with 139 horn and h-4831, like i said my big groups are 1" . i have shot 140 accu bond and 140 partitons too around 69.5 grain of h-4831. cci 250 wlrm or 9 and 1/2m primers.
