Running the 195 at around 3200 with there est BC's it will run right with the big 338's out to 1500, with exception of energy, it will still have over 1500# at 1500 yards.
I'm still not sold on the RUM, as I have a 30" barrel as well that was thinking of doing a 7 REM Mag before I got this barrel. I was wanting to avoid the belted cases to just avoid some of the problems that can come with them.
Good luck waiting on the berger 195's. they said here they would be out last may. Still no one at berger can give a solid date. I lost $100 exchanging (selling then buying a new one) to just have it still not on the market.
If u want no belt and u have a mag bolt face without using a rum size case i will say again use the 7 lrm from gunwerks.
If you can use a .595 bolt face a 7/300 norma is a better choice than the rum and doesnt have the length problems of the rum.
If you are a tinkerer then make the 7mm version of elkahollics 30/375 s.i.
Other than that within your requirements im out of ideas.
