No filler needed ...only adds one more variable,that can get dangerous if done incorrectly.
Ok here is some stuff I found for reduced loads for the 7mm Remington Magnum.
I have a few more, but not letting me upload for some reason.
Corn meal was another old-timey recommendation for filling cases.
If you go to loaddata.com, they have many reduced loads.
Rained all weekend, ... no new data.
I tried using the Dacron filler, spiked pressures tremendously! There is a learning curve associated with the Dacron and reduced loads relating to the 7 Mag, IMR 4064, 140's, and standard 9 1/2 primers. I had trouble getting the bolt open on a couple of shells. I went to magnum primers and all issues were solved.
I can tell you that the best combo bullet/ powder is 110ttsx barnes . Remember light bullet's kick a lot less. And for powder i recommend 5744. It is so good at reduced loads , it's the best. I have used it in many cartridges with light bullet's and where no load data exists i just load around 60% case capacity for top speed , and less if you want lower speed. If you look at all the load data that is available. You will see the top loads with light bullet's are usually around 60% case capacity. It has worked great for me with no excessive pressure signs yet and i have tried many.
This is good advice, been there done this and it works, 5744 is great stuff for this sort of thing...
175 gr Hornady Spt, CCI-250 , 40 grs of IMR-4064. Friend of mine uses this reduced load and really likes it. From Ken Waters Pet Loads Vol- 1.
