    Short(ish) 7mm Rem Mag Part 2

    Long overdue video to follow up on Part 1. Fair bit of waffle at the start with some shooting in tough conditions at the end.

    Cheers

    So what’s seems to be the best powder for these short barrel rem mags.
    R26, R23 or one of the adi powders

    @Breingan i used 2213sc in my 24" tikka, shot 9mm groups at 100m and gave exceptional FPS. no need to use fairy dust (RL powder)
