Its a ballistic twin to the 7mm Dakota and very similar in design as well. I can not say if the brass quality is same, better or worse then the Dakota but it would be a good performer for light big game out to well past 1000 yards.

For elk hunting, as with any 7mm magnum, I recommend 1/2 mile or less range be the limit. Not that they will not easily kill elk at ranges past this but this is just my recommendation for this bullet diameter on elk size big game.

Would be a good choice for long range hunting, especially light to medium big game. For heavier big game at long range, there are better choices in my opinion.

    We chose to buy the reamer and gauges from Gunwerks. The cost was $230.00

    Here the website for my gunsmith if anybody is interested Ryan does outstanding work at a very good price.

    I'm having a 7 lrm built and have been struggling what to shoot for bullets, 175gr nosler long range accubonds or 180 gr bergers. Both seem to have good and bad review as of late. For those reloading what did you decide on for powder?

    Thanks.

    Will John keep the reamer the reason I ask is I have thought of buying a reamer myself. I have all parts ready for a build just haven't picked which 7 I like best.

    On another note what barrel twist did you go with. I have two 1 8.5 Bart's and was thinking the new 195 berger would be pretty good out of that round.

    What was your "special" charge with the retumbo? How many grains? Just so I have an idea of where to start.
