    Just looking for some more loads to play with for my Kimber 7 mm 26". I understand all guns like different loads. I've tried a couple different loads already with more than happy results. Just would love to hear some of your guys favorite loads and the accuracy you have accomplished.

    Five Rem 700s (mine and four friends) in 7 Rem mag liked the 168 gr Berger classic hunter with 215 fed primers and 72-73 grs of Retumbo. Velocity approx. 3050 to 3100 fps

    Lunger, like Az Shooter’s load and there are seven of us here shooting the 168 Berger VLDH or Classics with H1000, 215M and Norma brass. Only .3gr difference between all seven loads. Obviously no two rifles shoot the same load, start low and work up. Good luck

    Nice I'm in the ball park then. I've loaded nosler brass with 168 berger classic hunter and h1000 cci primers with more than happy results. Thank you all just like to compare.

    70.7 grains of H1000 with a CCI250 with a 168 VLD in Win brass works extremely well to get to 3020 fps

    69.0 grains of H1000 with a180 VLD and a Fed215 runs 2975-3000 fps

    And finally, 70 grains of Retumbo with a 180 VLD and a Fed215 to get 3030-3050 fps

    72gr/H1000, with a 160 Nosler AB, Nosler brass, Fed 215, seated .040 off the lands. Its in a #5 Brux 28", 3175FPS, There is load data to 75gr of H1000 in propellant profiles book #5 &6 to 75gr. I did go that high, but with Rem brass, Primers blow out and thats too scary for me, Win, nosler & hornady didn't. 74gr worked really well but no need to drive them that hard(3250fps)
