7mm Ultra and 200 gn Wildcats (Kirby)

Anyone have any loads using US869 and the 200gn Wildcats? Have not had good luck with the Retumbo and this bullet.

    I've settled on 90.2 gr in my dad's Sendero. I have no idea what the velocity is, but I will after this weekend [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]!!

    Start at about 85 grains and work up from there.

    A 1-9 is better but there are quite a few using them in the RUM factory rifles. At lower velocity levels I suspect there would be issues and in very cold temps as well that may be a possibility as well.
