Re: 7mm rum velocity with 162gn amax

WEl the best I have so far is just over 3100, but this is only with one powder, and I was just testing it out to see how it shot.

I will be working with several others in the upcoming weeks to see what I can eek out of it. Not looking for anything blistering, just something which will put them in nice little groups out at long distances.

I have data for 8700 showing close to 3200 with a 160gr Partition. I would wager that this could be approached with the Accubond or A-Max as well.

Good luck and post up your findings.
