Re: 7mm RUM

I have yet to try the triple shocks yet but I have loaded the regular 140 grain XBT bullets with 87 grains IMR 7828 a CCI BR2 primer and had good results ( just under half inch groups ) and also same powder charge with a federal 215 primer and the groups opened up to 3/4 inch. They perform great on game with great one shot quick kills. I hear the triple shocks shoot tighter than the XBT also. I have used the 140 accubond and got decent accuracy with 90.5 grains H1000 and CCI 250 primers. didn't get a chance to try them an whitetail though.
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?

Re: 7mm RUM

When I first got my 7mm ultra I tried a few of the factory loads and got very poor results. I went ahead and started the load research and came up with a load that produces 1/2 inch groups.
150 grn Swift Scirocco with 80 grns of IMR 4831 @ 3125fps

Great whitetail load, I hunt with several rifles but with my 7mm ultra one example I can give is a whitetail at 326yds shot placed just behind the right shoulder took out the heart and dropped him in his tracks. Not a long shot by any means but very affective load.

Hope it helps you out and good luck.
