I am looking for ideas on max loads for strong, modern rifles, such as a Ruger #1 in 7 x 57 Mauser using primarily Nosler 140 gr Accubond, or equivalent, bullets for deer/black bear hunting. I may also decide to use 150 or 160 gr. I want to approach the limits for this rifle/cartridge combination.

Rem 700 Mnt rifle in 7mm Mauser; 51 gr H4350, 140 gr Ballistic tip, ~2800 fps w. 22" barrel. No pressure signs.

Load was out of Hodgden manual #24, special section on 7mm Mauser in modern actions.

Ive got some 175 gr loads that are MUCH stiffer. :eek:
