I have gotten my 7 mag sited in to the best i can for right now but wanted to see what yall shot to try a couple of different loads. I zeroed in with some PMC ammo and i can't find it anywhere (my dad used to shoot it) and i need somthing easier to find. I would love to know what yall shot from your 7 Mag.

The best one is whatever your gun shoots well. Unfortunatly none of us can know that from here. I suggest buying a couple of different boxes of commonly available rounds at wal-mart, dicks, academy or Franklin Gun shop and then seeing which one you shoot well.

Good Luck

I reload, so this may not help you but, I like the Hornady 162 grain Interlocks and H4831 powder. This load will produce sub MOA out all three of my 7mm mags.

I reload almost everything but some of my friends love Hornady and from what I see them shoot with it I can understand why... I shoot the Hornady in my 222 until I can accumulate enough brass... The only reason I have not reloaded for it yet is becasue before I got set up to reload it I really wanted to shoot the gun (Steyr SL varmit gun from the 60's with a set trigger) and the Hornadys shoots into nice little 1/4 inch groups out of that gun 100 yards.... so I figured I would buy two more boxes of the stuff and shoot it up and then reload the brass....

Long story short... Try Hornady

This says it all,although I might add most of my buddy's that don't reload use Hornadys and they seem to do real well in a number of different calibers.
