Default Reloading Powder

I am wanting to get into reloading my own ammo. I'll be starting with 7mm Rem Mag. Which powder would you recommend? Is powder pretty much available?

Good luck, powder is hard to get unless you pay horrible hazmat charges for shipping

Availability is hit and miss, but much better than a year ago. Reloader 19 is probably a good powder for 7mag, I use it for my .280 Rem.

Purchase some reloading manuals and compare what each one is using . It could cost you In excess of $600 for the initial investment with the cost of primers, powders, projectiles. To get what you Want / what your Rifle wants, itís going to be extremely pricey right now.

In my recent experience, most magnum powders have been hard to come by.

Find a powder that covers a lot of calibers since once you start reloading, it becomes addictive. I settled on H380 30 years ago and bought 20 lbs. It is not the best for each caliber but man it measures and loads easily and most of all it has produced some really accurate rounds.

H4350 has been available off and on for the last month or so through Powder Valley or Midway.

H1000, Retumbo, H4340, IMR4350,RL26 would be good choices,

Where are you located? I’ve got extra of all of the above if you need some to get started. Shoot me a pm is you happen to be in NE Texas and I know where to buy CCI 250’s without hazmat fees.

Powders are becoming more readily available. Primers well…

Primers, especially Magnums, are will be the hardest component to find right now. Graf's and Son's is a good source. Reloading is somewhat addictive. Good luck to you.
