    Has anyone worked up or found any 7mm rem mag load data for the 168gr accubond long range bullets? Did some searching and can't seem to find anything.

    Unfortunately I don't have my notes with me but I just started loading the 168s with not much luck on my first attempt. I believe I tried 61g of N560 and shot a 3' group.

    For the 150s I used 63g of N560 and shot just under MOA. Both are with Fed 215M primers and new Norma brass FL sized loaded about .30 off the lands.

    So far I can't beat my 160AB loaded with 64g of N165, 215M primers and Winchester brass. Tack drivers for sure out of my Sako Finnlight. I think the 168s might be better with a 1 in 9" twist and mine is only 1 in 9.5" but will keep trying.
    Will be breaking out the chrony as soon as it warms up and all the white stuff disappears.

    My rifle loves RL22 but RL22 doesn't like the drastic temp changes in northern Canada. Had very good luck with Viht powders as far as temp stability.

    I just shot some groups with the 168's in 7mm and got pretty good results with 70 g of H1000 with a coal of 3.35. That is about .090 shorter than what I load Bergers but the Noslers seem to do better with more jump to the lands. I got 3 shots at just under an inch at 300 yards and less than 6 inches at 950 yards with 4 MOA of wind. The first time I shot Nosler LRs , I tried them out close to the lands like the Bergers and was over 1 MOA groups and was disappointed to say the least. After todays testing, I'm a lot happier! Getting right at 3000fps.
