The rifle;  Winchester model 70 classic LH 7mm Rem mag, SS 26" barrel
The brass; New winchester?
The bullets; Nosler PT. or Speer 175 GS?
The powders; H 1000, IMR 7828, R 22, Accurate Mag pro, Win. WRX?
The primer; Rem. 9 1/2, Win. LR, CCI LR mag?
This is what I have on hand.
 This the forth 7 MM mag I have had since 1962. The first was a
Savage 110, [2] Remington 700, [3] Maurer 3000 now the model 70. With the powder on hand at the time, they would not attain 3000 fps with a 175 Gr bullet?
Is there any of these load combo that work for you? Let me know.

If you know how many guns you have. You need to by more.

From what I gather, a heavy dose of RL22 or RL25 should get you very close to that 3000fps.

Hornady 7th edition 66.2gr Rl 25, 2900+ fps.  Nosler 6th edition 62.5gr RL 22, 2970fps.  Note: These are compressed full load charges, Be carefull.

I had a Remington with a 24 inch barrel in 7mm rem. mag. about 25 years ago and I got good velocity and dafe pressures with 78 grains of H870 and 175 grain bullets. If I remember right these loads clocked close to 2950 fps. Another 2 inches of barrel should get you close to 3000 fps.

The Speer reloading manual #14 lists my old of 78 grains of h870 and the 175 grand slam as the fastest load at 2954 in a 24 inch barrel. It beats R25 by 66 fps., r22 by 124 fps. and H1000 by 172 fps.
