Does anyone have some load data they would share with a 7SAUM and 160gr accubonds? I looked at Nosler's data and they didn't have any of the powders that I was planning on trying - H1000, RL26 or VV N565.

Thanks for any help!

I've only ran 155 Hammer Hunters and 175 Elite Hunters in mine. H1000 for both. I tried RL26 with some 155 Absolute Hammers but not enough yet. The H1000 works great for the loads I've done and would probably work great for the 160 AB's. I run 160AB's in my 7x57 AI and they shoot awesome out of it.

FWIW - I run 69.0gr RE26 in my 7WSM under the 160AB bullet. I get 3,100ft/sec with good accuracy in the 25" Bartlein bbl. I've seen no indication of excess pressure and could probably increase the charge a bit.

I currently shoot the 175gr elite hunters out of mine, but recently was given the opportunity to shoot a red stag here in Texas - the pics that I've seen of them, they weigh between 500-600lbs basically a bull elk.

That was my thinking with the 160gr accubonds.

I just worry about imperfect angles and that big shoulder...I have not tried hammers. Do you have a grain weight you'd recommend? I'm shooting an 8 twist

Mine shoot 160-162 class bullets very well with H4831sc (56.5gr and up) and H1000 (62,5gr and up).
