I can't "run a load" for you but I can share my experience. I have a Rem model 7 in 7mm-08 with 18.5" barrel. My load is 49 grs H414, CCI 200 primer, 130 gr Speer HotCor bullets and Hornady cases. Chrony shows 2875 average. Have killed a lot of Whitetails with this load but 1.25" group best I can get. Probably has a lot to do with the slender 'pencil' barrel on the gun.

Thank you both for the help. Looks like the 4895 might be the better powder if it is accurate.

Anytime, don't underestimate IMR 4064, its a beast in my .308 as well along with Varget.
