    I seated them at 3.360, max magazine length and started at 65 and went to 67...needed to prep more brass before loading any more but thank you...I'll have to go lower for any other ladder testing

    I had ALOT of trouble getting 168 gr Bergers to shoot in my 7 Wby. I'm following this thread simply to see the results.

    For what its worth I had great accuracy using 140 Gr Barnes TSX bullets and Norma MRP.

    Never used IMR4831, but 168s with H4831SC is the load my friend uses with outstanding accuracy 0-500 yds. Start low and work up, his accuracy came in well below max. H4831SC, 215M, Wby brass, 168 Berger VLD in a 26" Mark V. Good luck
