    i am thinking these are cupro nickel.
    the open backed exposed core is not an issue never has never will be.
    most full metal jacket handgun and rifle bullets are open backed.
    thats why during and after ww-11 guys used to turn them around and use the base end first for hunting, the silver ones you have have a jacket that is too hard and wont work this way.
    if you can melt even a smidgen of lead out of the back of one of them, you need to cut that bbl back to under 100 yds long and need to stop using 200 grs of flash powder.
    just use a starting load for a bullet that weight or slightly heavier and you will be able to use them.

    now if they are solid lead [cast] and have a plain base try 8 -10 grs unique, or some 2400- 16 grs would be a good start, you won't get much over 1300 fps before problems arise.

    I'm confustigated. If I understand you correctly you have 170 (?) gr. full metal jacket bullets from som milsurp ammo. Is this correct? You should be able to use them at full power with one caveat. Thse bullets are most likely to have cupronickel jackets and they will foul the crap out of your bore. To check to see if the jackets are cupronickel or steel, put a magnet to the bullet. If it sticks, it's a mild steel jacket. If not it's cupronickel. It takes a very powerfull ammonia mix to emove cupronickel from a bore. If the jackets turn out to be mild steel, then you can shoot them up to full power. FWIW, every round of Norma ammo I've used, 6.5 Jap, 6.5x54 M/S and .257 Robt. has had a steel jacket. Some were left in the original steel color and some, my .257 Robt. ammo has a copper wash but a magnet still sticks to the bullet.
    Oh, and one more thing. AFAIK, the 7MM Mauser has never been loaded with black powder. It was developed in 1892 for Spain and was a smokeless powed round from the start. It's a round I've played with and studied for onver 40 years having acquired my first 7x57 back around 1973 or 74. I currently have three, a custom FN Mauser, a Winchester M70 Featherweight and a Ruger #1A. It's one of my favorite cartridges.
    It'll be interesting to see just what material was used in the jackets of those bullets.

    Then I think those jackets may be cupronickel. That stuff will foul a bore badly and be an outright bear to clean up. it took the use of very strong ammonia to get that stuff out of a barrel, even if velocity was kept to original 7x57 levels. I dunno if using something like Sweet's 7.62 solvent would clean that up should you shoot it. If you want to shoot them, keep the velocity as slow as possible. Maybe the following will help.
