Hi all,

I just purchased a 7mm Rem Mag (CDL with a 26 inch barrel) and plan to buy components this weekend to start loading. I think I have settled on starting with 168 Berger VLD's but may end up using the 140 VLD's too since my primary use for this rifle will be whitetails and mule deer out to 700 yards max, but most shots will be 400 and closer...

My question is which powder to start with? I am not familiar with any of the "standard" 7mm powders. It seems each caliber has good all-around powders such as IMR 4064 for the 270, H380 for the 22-250, WIN 748 for the 223 and so on.

What powders would be conisdered the standards in the 7mm Rem Mag and are widely availabe? The two that have caught my eye so far are H1000 or H4831sc...

(BTW) I did a search on this and all of the different information just confused me even more.

Thanks for your help!
