Found two good loads for me and my friend, we both recently purchased factory Tikka T3’s 7mm REM Mags.
My load
•Virgin Norma Brass
•70.2 gr RL 26
•175 gr Berger Elite Hunters
•WLRM Primers
• .01 ish off the lands
•2953fps average, 8 E.S
Shot about 1/2 MOA at 100yds, and shot really well out to 980yds
Buddies Load
•RP Brass
•69gr RL 26
•168 Berger VLD
•REM 9 1/2 Magnum Primers
• .02 ish of the lands
• .003 bump
•2976fps
Shot 1/2 MOA at 100. Only verified velocity on one shot, so I don’t know how consistent yet, and haven’t been able to stretch it out yet. Pretty cool the difference in seating depth made on his load, .005 ish to .02 was a totally different ball game. Thanks for all the advice on here before I started, sure glad I didn’t try the 195’s in these factory guns lol.

Nice groups and also like the velocity with the 175's.
