+1, I agree. That's why I'm going straight to the top of the tree on 7mm (RUM). Launching NBT120's at max load, my calculations (based on a 25% increase in powder charge) indicate more than 400fps gain over the standard rem mag (pushing the MV to over 4K). But that would only translate to the real world if the efficiencies were equal. Unfortunately, the 7RUM has a reputation for not being very efficient. I hope to be ready to begin actual testing in 3 to 4 weeks.
P.S. I don't know why everybody says the Berger VLD180's are so great. With the Hornady VLD180's having a BC of .684, THEY are the top of the tree, as far as long range 7mm bullets go.
