Curious to know the max charges you folks may have used for the 7 Mag with H1000 / 150 grain Nosler BT bullet. Reloading manuals says 68 to 70 grains is max charge. I have two nodes on QL, one is low and one is high at 73 grains, looking to seek the high node. Working up a load from 68 to 70.4 grains, hopefully find what I am looking for when I get out to the range. Even if I don't get the high node because of pressure, the % fill and % burn looks good and seeking a consistent load with low SD and ES.

What velocities are you getting?

3,018 with 70.4 grains. Feels like it has room for more. No pressure signs.
