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.

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

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

    I used Retumbo and shot only the 180 VLDS.
