I know someone has tried this combo. I just a few of the 200s to try in my old man's 7mm RUM Sendero. I don't know if they will stabalize but we shall see!!! I've got US869, WC872 and Retumbo running out my ears. I figure one of them will work.
Haven't tried any yet, but I would like to know as well. I have the sendero with a 1-9.5 twist. I talked to the gentleman from berger. He said that these remmy stock barrels will stabilize the 180 grain bergers. I can send you the e-mail if you'd like with the loads.
Thanks. I'm thinking I'm going to start w/about 90 gr of US869 and work up in 1 gr increments chronographing every shot till I find my pressure limit. Then I'll get serious. The chrono might help find a load.
On a side note, I pulled out the SP OAL gauge last night and found out that I'm not going to be able to get anywhere near the lands [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]. Kinda dissapointing. I can't believe this rifle is throated so long.
BJ, i loaded 88 gr of 872 with the 200 wildcats.these had the sierra jackets.at 90 the bolt got a little sticky.the 180 bergers had 99 gr of 872.used 215 primers and rem cases for both. the bergers would get to 1k quicker.
