    Hello all,
    I shoot a Berger 175 Elite Hunter 7mm bullet and have been loading it with RL26 in ADG brass. But I have just found out that RL26 is not available at this time and no one can tell me when it will be available. plus I have a 10 day trip planned for next week and need some ammo to shoot long distance steel with. So I am in need of changing me load. I would like some help on what powder and loads those of you shooting 7mms have found success with. Thank you in advance for your help.

    H1000! I am assuming you are talking about 7 RM. I can give you my load data when I get home if so for 180 berger hybids which will be in the same ball park. If you got a descent barrel length it will get you pushing that 3K mark.

    Yes, it is the 7 RM. My barrel is a 24''. I would like to be close to the 3000fps but I understand I might need a longer pipe.

    H1000 is prob best bet! max load on Bergers site is 67.6 at 103% for the 175gr Elite hunter on 7mm Rem Mag. I don't have any ADG brass but have been told that case capacity is lower due to stronger brass, so they say to start out at 10% less than normal. Hope this helps

    H4831SC and Reloader 23 would also be worth considering, especially in a 24" barrel I think you will see some more velocity with them than H1000.

    H4831 gonna be hard to beat for stable velocity and accuracy in a 24" barrel!

    Yep, H1000 or RL 25. RL 25 data is amost identical to RL26 Data.

    I have heard that RL25 is not easy to adjust for temp changes. Is that so?
