Well I have not loaded for my own rifle due to its another week or two from being finished BUT, I have loaded for my fathers 7mm Rem Mag

Nosler Brass
Fed 215 primers
150 gn combined technologies ballistic silver tips
73.8 gn of RL25
Approx 3150ish fps
Coal 3.288

My dad shot him high shoulder at approximately 275yds, he wheeled and wobbled off and fell over about 25-30yds from where he was shot!
I didn’t even shoot him but I felt very rewarded knowing I loaded the ammo!! Love this hobby and I see this will be taking to many hours spent down the road!

thanks to all for the great information y’all are so willing to give! Half or more if my reloading equipment has come from the classified section of the site!

Congratulations to your Dad on a darn nice buck, taken with your hand loads. Your first is always pretty special......kinda like your first “real” girlfriend! 😉 Now, when you get your first kill with your homemade cast bullets.....you’ve really elevated your game! Not sure how to relate that to other life changing experiences! memtb

Outstanding! Once again, as has already been said above, there is something magical and special about taking an animal with your own hand loads. Outstanding.

Congratulations to both of you! Your a goner now, no point in even trying to go back. Enjoy!
