Opinions on shooting 180 gr JLK in 7SAUM

I'm having a 7mm SAUM being built right now and I was looking at pushing 180 gr JLK's through the 28" barrel. From what I have read, reaching 2900+ fps won't be a problem. I was wondering if anyone has shot these bullets at similar velocities and if they live up to the advertised BC of .735. Also what kind of wind bucking ability do they have? Thanks for the info.

Sorry I cant be of more help, BUT berger bullets just revised thier bullet B.C. listing as they were often listed a little on the high side. Bergers new B.C. for 180gr 7mm is .659 thats GREAT for lead core bullet. Only range work or someone more intimate with JLKs can help further. Id be sceptical of .735 in a lead core. Try doing some forum searches maybe. Good luck.

There's some loads on 7mm Cartridge Guide

About the JLK's, I've always heard they were of very similar dimensions as the Berger's.
