    These were given to me from Walt Berger of Berger bullet. You didn't specify anything in your post. These loads are for a 180gr Berger VLD

    Load data was generated using Quick Load a 26 inch barrel a COAL (cartridge over all length) of 3.290 inches and your COAL and velocity could be a little different.
    AS WITH ALL RELOADING APPROACH THE MAXIMUM LOADS WITH CAUTION AS ALL RIFLES AND RELOADING TECHNIQUES WILL BE DIFFERENT. If YOU CHANGE ANY OF YOUR COMPONENTS; THIS INCLUDES DIFFERENT POWDER LOT NUMBERS; YOU MUST REFIGURE YOUR LOADS BY STARTING WITH THE MINIMUM LOAD.

    Welcome to LRH and enjoy!

    What is the intended purpose? Target? Hunting (what game)? Range?

    If hunting, where? - for temp sensitivity considerations.

    Is there a certain bullet you have in mind?

    Any pertinent info would be helpful to narrow down your requirements.

    Sorry about the lack of information. Going to be used for whitetail but shots can be from 50 yards to 300 open range and brush so i am looking for loads that will work for both. I just picked the 7mm up about 3 months ago.
