Default 7 mm mag & Accubond Question

I would like any info on anyone loading this , if you are at or around or above 3200, fps. I'm currently using RL 22 fed 215 primers and 140 gr accubonds, oal has to fit in the mag, just looking to tweak my load. Thanks JG

I'm shooting 140gr accubonds at 3300fps with 70gr RL-22 in my A-bolt eclipse. 26"bbl. Started at 66.0 grains and moved up here. Found that 67.5 was incredibly accurate (<0.3") but was very dirty. I hit pressure signs at 71.5gr.
I'm using WLRM primers, once or twice fired brass and neck sizing only. My OAL to the lands is 3.353" and my loads are at 3.338".
If you're at 67.5 or 68, go up slow. I shoot this on cool days and let it cool between strings.

Have you played with retumbo yet? The hodgdon site shows 71gr starting, 75gr max for the partition bullet.
