    Blaser 7mmRM 162gn Amax Load....anyone?

    Hi - my 2 past 7mmRMs have shot sub-half inch with 2217 and Amaxs. Will be my starting point but has anyone got a load they have found works well for them (I would work up to it if possible of course).

    72.0g AR2225. Forgot jump but nothing shot well in either Blaser barrel I own even close to the lands. IIRC it was about 20K jump

    Yup, factory blaser barrels like a lot of jump. Even my original .223 barrel needed 20thou from memory.

    Brilliant...same load as my HS which also liked a good jump...benefit of jump was reduced pressure but 3150fps with 162s.
