7mm RM 162 eld-m and RL 26 starting load.....was thinking 67 or 68 should be safe?

Managed to pick up several hundred of these but can't find any loading info. from the manufacturers.....
Looking to work up a load with these (for practice primarily) an then interchange with eld-x for hunting antelope/mulies. I'm already using partitions for elk but they're too scarce to burn up.

Not Hornady bullets, but Speer has data developed for their bullets. This is from their rifle data page.. 67 or 68 grns. may be to hot for your rifle.. Don't know how the surface area of the ELD line compares to Speer's bullets.

For 7 mm Remington magnum with Norma brass, RL26 and 175 eldx I had a good load at 66.6 gr in my rifle. Obviously the rule is to start well below and work up but I think anywhere in the mid 60s is a good place to begin. I found the eldx liked to be jumped a good bit in my chamber. Have fun and back off if you see pressure.
