    I'd like to know what kind of velocity guys are getting with the 160 class bullets in their 7-08, specifically the 162 Amax, but any 160 will help me out. I've looked through 3 different manuals and they have loads listed that will do 2730 - 2780fps.

    I'm not looking to max mine out or anything like that, if I need more velocity out of the Amax I'll step up to my 7 saum. However, I'm working up a load with Re 17 and am wanting to know what people are getting for real world velocities and what powder you're using.
