    175 Berger elite in 7mm Rem Mag. RL26 or RL33?

    Hey has anyone loaded the 175g Berger hunter elite for their 7mm rem mag?

    I've got some RL33 RL26 and 2217 to play around with. On Bergers load data, the RL33 had the higher velocity over the H1000/ 2217. Would RL 26 be any quicker?

    The gun is Tikka 24 inch, superlite. Running norma brass and federal magnum match primers.

    Any intel would be appreciated!

    I don't load the Berger elite but load the 175 LRAB in my 7 mm Mag using RL 26 using 65.8 grs which is .1gr under the book max and get 2900 fps. COAL is 83 mm

    2217 is ok for lighter pills, like 150gn, in REM mag. But you will get much better results with slower powders like RL26, 2225 or RL33 with heavy pills.
