I'm reloading some 7mm mag and have bought the hornady 162g eld-x to give it a try. I've looked online a couple of places I get load data from with no luck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I shoot them (162 ELD-X ) out of my Rem. 700. My rifle preffers Fed 215 primer and RL-22 powder. I use Rem brass. Best accuracy from my rifle has come at near max load from my Hornady 9th edition manual. As Slayer has indicated I am using data for the A Max bullet. Other powders I tried that gave acceptable,for me, accuracy were Retumbo and H-1000.
I'll have to check out my manual and see which one I have. As far as for the 7 mag I have a few pounds of accurate magpro and some federal mag primers I was hoping to use. I'm not opposed to trying a different powder I just want to use up some of my stock before buying more. It's not hard to accumulate 15-20 lbs of powder trying to get best results for different calibers. I'm almost powder poor.
