    Tried berger with 2 emails and now have 2 calls into them. Shooting 168 vld hunting out of 7mm rem mag. Need load data for reloader 22 and retumbo. MAX and MIN would be great. Or a link or thread to the data because it's probably already on the site. Thanks for the help. Any is better than what i've gotten from berger.

    I'm also waiting for a reply on load data for my 338 RUM. They might make great bullets, but their website is lacking greatly. If I get no reply I will stay with Nosler and Barnes.

    quickload info .

    7mm rem mag ,24 inch bbl , 3.290 COAL , with a 168 berger .

    retumbo max 74.4 @ 3051FPS 110.8% case fill

    reloader 22 max 66.3 @ 2984FPS 98.2% case fill

    rule of thumb is to start 4 grains below max and work up . Jim

    From an email from Walt himself Jan '11. I have gotten a few different chabering's load info from berger. They seem to be a little on the cautious side

    I tried to sort it out a little better, but the editing wouldn't take the spaces I added in.

    PM me your E-mal address and I'll fwd the entire email.
