    Can anyone recommend a good powder -- one thet you've had personal experience with -- for deer in my 7mm BR Encore?

    I plan on using the Sierra 130 gr. SSP Spitzer.

    There's a lot of data out there pointing toward Win748, but other than that, there doesn't seem to be a "favorite."

    Thanks,
    Rich

    It's been 20 years since I loaded for the BR, but IIRC, H335 was judged to be the best overall powder for it in an XP100. You can find data at www.hodgdon.com

    28.5 grains reloader 7 with a 120 Nosler Ballistic Tip and Federal 205m Primers is the load I use and it is excellent on whitetails. :)
