7Rum loads

I have recently purchased a 7rum sendero and have had alot of trouble finding loads for it due to none of the manuals having this caliber in them. I was hoping someone had some experience with this caliber. I was also wondering if I could use the 300rum data as a reference due to the cases being the same size and capacity??

    Re: 7Rum loads

    140 accubonds
    87 gr of H4831
    Fed 215 primer
    Rem brass

    That's the only load I have at the moment.
    I e-mailed barnes, hodgson and hornady and they sent me some loads-I don't have them handy but if you want them let me know.

    Re: 7Rum loads

    Yea I would like those loads when you get a chance. I have worked with the accubonds with several different powders including the one you mentioned but was not completely satisfied with the acuracy ( most were around 1/2 inch but I am used to better than that with my other guns ). I am very interested in the triple shock X bullets in 140 grain and the 150 grain scirocco but cant find any info and at the rate I been putting bullets down my barrel ( over 120 rounds so far ) it will be shot out before I find a couple of good loads to take care of the different animals I hunt.

    Re: 7Rum loads

    Hi there,

    The new Nosler & Hornady manuals have them in but are a bit on the lite side, I also have a Sendero and am finding ADI 2225 (Ratumbo) to be showing promising signs, 94 grn so far with no excessive pressure signs.
    Hope this is of some help.
