7mm dakota shooters

G'day folks,
Just after some data/ info on the 7mm dakota. I am wanting to use 162 a-max and the 180 Berger hybrids.

Thanks

I shoot the 180 bergers on top of 73gr H-1000 to get about 3070 fps. out of a 27" brux barrel. Shoots half minute angle or less all day. Longest shots so far out to 1640 yards. Love the cartridge but brass can be difficult to find sometimes as Dakota arms are the only ones distributing.

I believe Dakota always has it available for sale. Have you experienced otherwise?

Goes on backorder frequently. Patience is a virtue.

I shoot both the target hybrids and the hunting vld's. I load them both 10 thousands off the lands and have same point of impact.
