    I just picked up my new 7mm RUM. It has a Sheilen 1 in 9 twist barrel 26inch. I was dead set on using the 180gr bergers. boy am I happy. I tried H1000 first which is what all my buddys use with great success. My riffle however did do well with it. I found that sweet spot with 91.5 gr of Retumbo with the 180VLD right at .005 off the lands. Velocity is 3215fps which is much better than I had hoped for.5 shot group mesured .216 after deducting .284 for the bullet. Made my day! Good luck

    I found Retumbo the best, I use 98.0 gr (above max) for 140s at 3650 fps, cuts the same hole.

    I have a second rum, that I load 168 VLDs (93.5 gr) of rutumbo (above max) it works well again well under MOA.

    I struggled with these rums, until Retumbo came along.
