7 mm Dakotah

Any one try Rutumbo for a load and did you have any luck? Im shooting 180 grain berger. If so what would be a good starting point.

Re: 7 mm Dakotah

It's spelled Dakota.....Not "Dakotah".

Re: 7 mm Dakotah

Unfortunately, I have never owned, shot, or reloaded for a 7mm Dakota. I have heard great things about the cartridge itself, though. Sorry if I came off as being a dick, I was just trying to be funny...Looking back I realized just now that I left out the smilie face. No harm intended.

Re: 7 mm Dakotah

use search and look for my post of my MCR 7mm dakota.

I used Retumbo and shot only the 180 VLDS.

3175FPS pout of a 32" pipe

I sold that particular rifle however I'm currently buiding another
