    Fixing to order powder and primers as I already have some Hornady 162Gr A-Max Bullets
    will be using CCI #250 Large Rifle Magnum primers and am really looking at Hodgdons H4831 for Powder
    as i see alot of talk in my manuels as it being the best.

    According to my Hornady 8th Edition Starting Load is 53.7 at 2600 FPS and Max of 59.7 at 2800 FPS

    does anyone else have a powder they prefer more for the 7mm Mag? it will be tuesday before i get powder and primers as
    i will call Midsouth in Clarksville and pick up myself so as to save the hazmat shipping fee and plus they are only 20 miles away.

    Thanks

    IMR 7828 ssc is probably my overall favorite in the 7mm r.m. and .300 w.m. Another good one is RL19. Prior to my using 7828 my go-to powder was always H4831 sc. My load is quite a bit higher than the max listed. I won't tell you what it is for liability purposes.

    While I have not shot the 162 A max in my 7mm Rem Mag, I have had excellent results with Ramshot Magnum shooting a similar bullet in one of my 7 mags.
    The Ramshot magnum is almost 200 fps faster than the load you listed. Due to my uncanny ability to make typos, I do not list loads online. Go to Ramshot powders website and the data is there for you in their online data.

    I was telling you I had much better results with the powder I listed than the one you asked about.
