    New load for tikka 7mm

    Hey guys Iím running adi 2225 in my loads at the moment but as everyone will know I wonít be getting any more of that any time soon. Just wondering what other people have been running with more readily available powders with good results? Any help will be much appreciated
    Cheers

    Looking like it might be the best option at the moment. Only thing I can seem to find on if that’s not good is the temp stability

    I am loading for a rem mag at the moment. It didn't like the 2225 with the projectile he has settled on, so that may be available if I can talk the fella into selling it.

    What weight projectiles are you using? 2217/h100 could be worth a look or reloder 26/33 depending on projectile weight if

    I’m using 162g eldx. Yeah they are the other powders I’ve been doing a bit of research on they aren’t much eaiser to find at the moment either

    I've been running the 162 eldx in my tikka previously with adi 2213sc. Been hard to get a hold of but H4831sc is the equivalent so could be worth a try

    RE22 has terrible temp stability. I used it in .25-06, .30-06 and .300 WM when I lived in the US. Good velocity but big differences in drops between summer and winter.

    If it’s all you have, use it, but there are better options out there.
