i just bought a 7MM and have already played did some testing about my bullets and powders... ive used H1000, RL22 with berger and A-MAX bullets, and with my gun A-MAX is the way to go but i want to try H4831 powder but dont know where to start it if it burns hotter or not... if anyone shoots a 7MM with H4831 if you would let me know a good place to start the grains

Assuming you are talking about the 7mm Remington Magnum and a 162 gr. Hornady A-Max, with H4831 I would start at 62 grains and work up from there watching for pressure signs. Back off to 61 grains if you are planning on jamming the bullet into the lands.

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
