90-95% with H1000, 95-100% with Retumbo. thats giving the load of 61 grains of H1000 and 63 grains of Retumbo on a 140 class bullet

63 grains of H1000 and the 130 Berger is about spot on 100% case fill under bullet

Thanks guys! Do you know what the case dimensions are? Was there any change from the saum or is it just necked down? The capacity for my SS is very similar with RP brass and holds 71.5 With Norma, but my case is considerably shorter than a normal saum so it will fit in a std. mag......Rich

I am fairly sure it is just a straight 6.5 saum.

Hey Riley, I thought you mighthave croaked! Haven't heard much from you for a while.
Ya, I think it may be a straight 6.5 SAUM with a different throat spec than a std, but not sure?

Rich,
I just remeasured it. It's 72.8. Just a 7 SAUM necked down .081" freebore. That's Norma brass. 300 SAUM and once fired
