4350 and re 19 are too fast burning for all but 100 gn bullets in the 7 mag if you want to achieve full capability of the case.
the 4831s are good for 120 gns.
imr 7828 was designed for 7 mag facory ammo, so that gives a bit of a guide for most used bullets in 7 mag.
re22 is a little faster than that.
h1000 might be a little slower?
the last 3 would be your friends.
Sorry I missed this. I have started using the app and it doesn't notify me like the browser version.@Pheroze I realize your comments about reloading for your Browning BAR in 7mm are about 5 years old, but was wondering what you came up with. Now that I am retired, I am slowly getting more and more into reloading. I have a BAR in 338 WM and it shot just about anything I fed it equally well. Remington Core-Lokt in 225 gr shot really well.
@Shootist43 got me going with recommendations on H-4350 and I've slowly added a few other powders (Accurate MagPro, IMR4831, Superformance, Alliant PowerPro 4000 MR and Ramshot Big Game).
I have a Ruger M77 in 7mm mag that I want to work up a good load for, using either Swift A-Frames, Nosler Partitions, Hornady SST or ELD-X bullets.
FWIW, my Montana elk guide shoots 7mm mag and reloads with 160 gr Nosler Accubond and 62.5 gr IMR 4831. He routinely takes out wolves and coyotes at 500 yards. This is from a Tikka bolt action.
@PherozeI spoke to soon....what an odd coincidence. I was over at my father's today to help out. He told me to take the BAR. I forgot, he actually has two. He offered to let my youngest use/have them. So, I guess I should dust off the dies and powder. I am still unsure about reloads for a semiautomatic. I am more nervous about the brass failing because I can't minimize the stretch by sizing the case to the chamber.
