I hope you solve your problem. My magnum affinity was solved by an orthopedic surgeon. I have had four rotator repairs, and all were separations. Ouch.

I have not picked up my 7mm Rem mag or my 300 WSM in ten years. My deer rifle is now a 7mm-08. Even my beloved 30-06, 308, 270, 25-06, and 280 stay in the rack.

I had the best luck using Retumbo with the 160 grain Accubonds. I don't have my data in front of me right now but I believe I was shooting the max listed load from the Nosler manual and I know I used Remington brass with a Federal 215 primer. This also happened to be the most accurate in my particular rifle, well under MOA , the rifle has long since gone down the road but I kept the barrel because it shot so well.

I think it better to do right, even if we suffer in so doing, than to incur the reproach of our consciences and posterity.

I got some rel-26 and all is well. No problem getting the velocity with the accubond now. I was actually over 3000fps and settled on 2950-2975 with two cutting the same hole and one a half inch from the two. I repeated this group twice and am satisfied. Thanks for all the help.
