    Powders for 7mm rem mag

    What are you guys using to get the higher velocities out of your 7rm with 140-160 grain bullets I'm currently using h1000 cheers regards Benji

    H4831 for me though Re22 is also highly rated. I'm not too fussed about chasing every last fps as it is hard on your cases. Accuracy is the way to go in my book

    IMR 7828 is the powder Remington used to launch the big 7. It took many years for this to appear in cans for handloaders, but I've used it ever since.

    As I had plenty it later proved to work well in .243, 6.5 x 55, and .270.

    Hodgdon 1000 is a very slow number. Vit N165 is your next best match, whereas N160 is a bit quick but good in the 120gr.

    Reloder 22 is also a possibility, but have never used it.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    IMR 7828 SSC. Great Stuff!! It's also the best powder for 6.5x55 I've found with regards to accuracy.~Muir
