Now that the 7Val has been loaded for at least a couple of years, just wondering what everyone has had success with? Pet loads?

What powder has been found to work best with a particular bullet and/or weight? Any new powders found, not mentioned previously?

What Primers have been found to work well with what powders? 

Distance to lands with a particular bullet?

I am working with the Berger 168 Classic Hunter, Hornady 154 SST, Nosler 150 Partition and Nosler 150 LR AB. Still looking for the best accuracy from these four bullets in a hunting load. Anyone perfected the 150 Partition? I consider this to be the best game killing bullet available. The Partition has never let me down in my .270 Win or .300 Win Mag.

The load table in the Valkyrie sub forum is full of loads that are tested, and most have notes attached.  The load I use came out of that table, and cuts MOA or better at 200 yds.  I use the Hornady 139 gr. Interlock seated to the cannelure.  I don't fool around with stand off from the rifling.  The Interlock has an excellent reputation in the hunting fields.  Same bullet I use in my .280 Rem.  Since the Valkyrie is an AR round, I only use #41 primers.  A lot of the younger guys like to tinker with different powders, bullets, and primers.  I got that out of my system 25 years ago.

I'm aware of the Load Table in the sub forum... I put that together for Bruce. I'm now 66 years old and not sure I'll ever get "that out of my system"! Been doing it for over 40 years. I always felt that was the real reason to reload in the first place. With all the money and time I, and I'm sure others also, have invested in equipment, tools, space and supplies... One can hardly say they reload to save ammunition cost!  Anyway, what I'm asking for is if anyone has developed any other successful load data they would be willing to share, that is NOT listed in the earlier load data given on the website or Facebook pages, etc. Any combinations they found to perform well, at least for themselves, in their particular rifle. My father always told me... "You can never have enough Information".
