Yup cant complain about Berger bullets in 7mm..(or .308 or .243 or .223 for that matter).....well except for the fact my 280AI with a 10 twist will not shoot the 168s. My 7wsm shoots the 168s and the 180s great out so it isnt the bullets. But my factory RUM only likes the accubonds for some strange reason.

I had the same problem with my 700 7mm RUM. I was shooting 150 gr BT's at mag length and getting 0.5" at 100 yds. I am going to work up a load with the 160 gr AB for a cow elk tag this fall and could only touch the rifling with the bullet about to fall out of the case. Oh well, I'll just seat them to mag length also. I'm shooting 90 gr of 7828 SSC behind the 150 BT for 3375 fps, plan to try a couple grains less for the 160 AB.
I shot a whitetail buck with the 150 BT at 54 yds in 2006, shattered the shoulder going in and left a silver dollar sized exit through the meat of the other shoulder going out. Not bad performance at such a high velocity.

Recoil? Mine is gentle as a lamb:p Actually it isnt bad at all.

I dont think I have fired mine but a couple of times in the last year so maybe its just been blocked from my mind. Then again after I shot my 50 cal encore without removing that heavy aluminum ramrod it seems like nothing has recoil anymore. I just thought I knew what recoil was until that moment.
