Re: Thinking of 7mm RUM?
I own a Factory rem. sendaro in 7rum also. Leupold 6.5x20x50mm . I load the 150 grain swift scirocco with 99 grains of h-50bmg right now.
I was looking the my lyman i think its the 47th or 48th edition. I want to point out this so everyone else sees. The book has loads for "RX-25" Its RL-25. its a mistake.
Anyway. I am still working loads and seeing what works best. I dont use a chrono so Im going by the reload book. I am unsure of velocity. The book used the 150 grn scirocco - h-50bmg with 104.0 grains. This was compressed, max load and the accuracy load.
When testing loads what range are you starting at? I read the ladder test review on here, It said to start at 200 yards. I am trying to find a place to shoot from like 300-800 or more to work up these loads. Its hard working up any longrange load when im limited to 200 yards. I like the swift scirocco bullet. In the lyman book is says they got great results with h-50bmg. I like it so far. I am surpirsed more guys dont use it while loading this cartridge? As soon as i can find somewhere to practice shoot i will load up more 150g swifts and hit the range to test. My goal is to have a solid load and know my drop out past 1000.
