7MM Dakota load help....

I have a good friend that just got a 7mm Dakota built.

It has a 26" Douglas barrel 1 in 10 twist.

He is thinking of shooting 168 or 180 Bergers or Accubonds.

He has 4831SC and Retumbo.

Does anyone have any good load info or starting points for this.

My books don't show the Dakota in them.. time to upgrade I guess

thanks all...

    Call Ward at Dakota Arms and he will send you the data you want. It will help you get started.

    I use retumbo with a 200 WC.
