I'm thinking of shooting some 120 gr BT's in my 7mm-08 XP 100. I have the following powders on hand. AA2520, Benchmark, IMR 3031, IMR 4064 (very little), H450, H414, W748, W760, IMR 4350. I'll be using Remington 9 1/2 primers and new Winchester brass. Suggestions?

Not what you have, but I always used H-4895 with 140 NBT's and sometimes the 120 NBT's.

My best load has been 49.5grs H414, 120gr ballistic tip and a CCI BR2 primer.

My xp likes the 150gr Blist. Tip and h 4350.

I haven't tried any 120's yet. Thought I had some but I don't. I threw together a load with a moly coated 140 gt BT and Hodgdon Benchmark powder. So far 3 groups at 100 yds with an average around 0.65". Haven't chronographed but I'm guessing maybe 2500 fps. I still want to try the 120's, hopefully they will shoot as well as the 140's!
