Re: 7mm rum and 140-150 gr bullets

I'm not sure what my 7mm RUM is doing right now. I loaded up some 140 gr. Ballistic Silvertips for an antelope and mule deer hunt I went on earlier this month. They should be pushing between 3500-3600. I'm loading 95.5gr Retumbo. I'll put them through the chrono as soon as I can, and let you know. They did perform well on both animals, as well as a fat coyote. Three shots total, and none of the animals took a step. Ranges were between 250 and 325.

    I'm getting 3550 with 140 TSXs & H1000, I think 82gr. at least 4 reloadings on some of the brass and still tight primer pockets, have only had to neck size so far.

    I'll let you know as soon as I do, I went out yesterday morning to do it, but for some reason my chrono wasn't reading right. I think it was too bright where I was shooting.
