7mm RUM and WC872

So the rifle is back finally.

Has a new stainless fluted 28" PacNor Super Match barrel with muzzle break.

I am considering breaking it in with a load of 97 grains of WC872 behind a 162 grain Hornady SST.

The Hodgdon data shows 97 grains of 870 as the minimum load when shooting a 162 Hornady SST.

What do you guys think?

Also, what in the world do you carry a rifle with a 30+ inch barrel in?
