Just got back from range, and wanted to pass along some info on 7 mag with 162 A max, and 168 VLD. Using 64.5-4831ssc, and 162, groups at 100 were .437. When I moves it out to 200' groups ran an average of .582. The rifle is a " stock" 700 LSS, that has 74 rounds down the barrel now. I picked it up in December from a collector, who bought it new in 1999. Gun was unfired. I also shot the 168 VLD, with same charge, but was not as consistent. The VLD shoots amazing in another 7 mag that I have, but so far, not this one. These darn 162 A Maxes seem to shoot in about everything I stick them into. Did not take chronograph with me today, as I was just testing accuracy first. So far, this gun likes, 140 TSX, 154 spire point, flat base, and 162 A Max. I am thinking that due to barrel length, the powder mentioned will yield best velocity, along with RL-19. Any thoughts? Which bullet would be your pick?
