    7mm remington magnum pet loads

    I am currently building a 7mm remington magnum and want to know what your pet loads are for this caliber. My purpose is going to be long range target shooting beyond 1000m. Thanks
    They who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

    H-1000 and the 162 Amax. Load them touching the lands and work up from 66.5-70 grains, you will find a sweet spot in there.

    I usually run the 168 berger with cci 250 and 71.2gn of h1000. usually right around 3000 fps and has been a very accurate load for several different 7mags I load for. as far as seating depth,each rifle is different and has its own sweetspot, but if your mag allows it I start at the lands and then work back at 40 tho at a time. you will know when you find the sweetspot

    Got to reading about one of the loads the Secret Service used back when they used the 7 mag for counter sniper work and decided to give it a try.

    Rifle: Savage Weather Warrior, 22" Fluted Barrel, Factory Brake.

    120g Nosler Ballistic Tip
    69.5g H4831
    Norma Neck Sized Brass
    Federal 210M Primer
    OAL=3.330"
    3 Shot Group=.230"

    This one was moving at 3200fps. Yeah I know it was a 3 shot group but I will take it any day!

    In a 26" barrel RETUMBO or IMR 7828 under a 160 grain Nosler Accubond, Federal 215 primers.

    It's better to shoot for the moon and hit the fencepost than to shoot for the fencepost and hit the ground!
