You should try - 168gr MK and 64+grs of H4831 and a 9 1/2 Mag rem primer for targets.

For hunting use the 160gr Accubond and the H4831 or H4831sc.

Start low and work up.

i have two 7mm senderos. both shoot real good. i use nosler brass, 168 berger, 63 of re 19. but they shoot everything good to great. have you adjusted the trigger? and a muzzle break helps me a lot.

What have you tried so far?

My 7 mag loves RL-22 with any bullet I put in it. Haven't really messed with to many other powders besides Retumbo. Retumbo definately showed a velocity increase, but not as good accuracy wise. I didn't mess with it to much though as RL22 shot 1/2 MOA with at least 6-7 bullets.

My 7 RM is just a rem 700 BDL custom deluxe w/holland brake and trigger work w/leupold 6-18 w/turrets. Nothing special, but it shoots ridiculously well for a factory sporter...

you don't need 168 berger unless you shooting 600 yards or 1000 . i have had great success out to 600 with 139 horn and h-4831, like i said my big groups are 1" . i have shot 140 accu bond and 140 partitons too around 69.5 grain of h-4831. cci 250 wlrm or 9 and 1/2m primers.
