I have a problem with my sevenstring...

I'm currently using the following gauge
10 13 17 26 36 46 56
and my seventh low B string seems a lot looser than the others... So does my low E string, not that much, but I can feel the difference. It just gets very hard sometimes to play some fast riffs.

Do you know which gauge would work best for me? Or is it the guitar setup???

I was thinking of making my custom set
10 13 17 28 38 48 58/(60?)

Any ideas?

Do they frequently go out of tune?

Wellll... Now that you mentioned.... My low B does more often then all others. The biggest problem is that it isn't tight enough.

Have you ever properly read a lesson on how to re-string your guitar? If they're both strings that you've put on yourself, then it may be that you haven't strung them properly. I didn't read a proper lesson about how to tie the string to the peg for a long time. But when I did, I learnt that if you don't do it properly, it'll lead to a gradual loss of tension. Maybe that's what's wrong?
