Re: 300 RUM or 7mm with 180 bergers at 3000 fps
Great thread! I learned a lot from all your guys contributions. This LD thing is kind of addictive! I'm about to pick up my first mag cal, which will either be 7mm RM or 7 WSM next week. After dialing it in, paper, deer, and pigs will be the quarry.
Not sure if this is the right place to pose the question but:
From what I have gathered here, it looks like RL25 or H1000 is the choice for the 175/180s, but I will start with lighter bullets. (I also read somewhere that H1000 is somewhat temp sensitive?)
But I will be starting off with lighter bullets like in the 140 - 162 range. Looking for best accuracy. 24' or 26" barrel stock gun, not custom.
So, anyone got some suggestions for powder/primers? (I've been using Fed 210 match primers in my 270 & 243 with good results.)
Thanks for all your previous informative posts! And the pics of targets and dead pigs
