Any new on what the 7mm Tejas is running the 180 grain bergers at?? Looking for real life info. Heard something about 180 berger 3300! Just wondering if anyone has really seen this thing fly. Thanks for any replies in advance!

Okay, here is the best information yet on the 7mm Tejas Ultra Mag. I have found great success! Shooting the 180 berger vld at between 3400 and 3500 fps! I am shooting 7/16 groups.....
Here are two loads to start with and work up from there watching your pressures!
1. Retumbo start with 96 grains with an o.a.l. of 3.65
2. Hogdon us 869 starting with 100 grains o.a.l. of 3.65

Try seating your bullet to touch the lands... if it is too long for magazine, back it of .040 at a time... My gun loves 3.65 oal....

It will be tough to beat the speed and ballistics of this gun! Good luck, and shoot strait!

Would you be willing to send me a round? No powder of course but with bullet in and all. Just no powder or primer? I will pay shipping. I really want to see if it will fit my mag at your specs before i go reaming a barrel. Sounds like you have a real shooter friend!

I am not comfortable sending you a case... I believe it is patented and I certainly dont want to get into trouble...
The case is fire-formed and the entire case is enlarged including the shoulder is squared to approx. 50 degrees...
I am able to get 5-10% more powder into the case... pressures are touchy...

My buddy is shooting 3325 with 96.5 grains Retumbo
My other buddy is shooting 3300 with 104 grains US869
I know another guy shooting 3340 with 102 grains US869

Some guys are neck sizing to .311...
I am at .313...

Good luck... shoot strait...

If you are going to hunt you should only use 110 ttsx barnes bullet /this will reduce recoil /increace speed/flaten trajectory should get around 4000 fps with no problem this bullet is the shiz .

Is there a similar round called the 7mm tomahawk? Basically an improved 7rum?
