7mm RUM reloading

For those of you who have been reloading bullets for the 7mmRUM... What have you found to be the most accuratecombination. I have yet to do any myself but plan to. I am shooting with an "out the box" Sendero SF, 26" barrel, and a 9.5 twist. Thanks in advance. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: 7mm RUM reloading

I'm using the same rifle but its a 300 RUM as for the 7mm I would start with a healthy dose of R-22, R25 or Retumbo somthing slow with the 160gr or 140gr Accubond wich ever you prefer. IMR7828 works well also is this for target or hunting? If target go for the 175 or 168 MK or one of the berger bullets. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Thanks! Mainly just target. I will be hunting with it, but the deer in the hillcountry are more like dogs...so I don't worry about if it'll do the job or not.

Shooting a 7mm rum in a Savage. I use 86 gr of H4831 with rem brass, fed 215 primer pushing a 140gr Nosler Accubond-awsome accuracy and go velocity.
