After working at nosler for a few years, I realized some cartridges are just finicky. 7 RUM is one of them. Athough I am shooiting one right now. Only because I ran into a bartlein barrel with no wait. That and I just wanted abit more poop than a 7WSM. Its only a 1 minute gun but it will hold it to a mile. Shoots through conditions like you wouldnt beleive. For everyday shooting I would go with something a bit easier to load for. For hunting I will shoot the thing that takes the most possibles out of the equasion.
