Re: 7RUM & Vv N170


140 TTSX with Ramshot Magnum pushing envelope at 3450 in my Accumark. 162's run 3150 w/RL-25 it has a brake.

The last of my 162 A-max's (moly) and last of Retumbo 93.0 grain shot a .257 3 shot group this morning at 100 yrds in my 700LSS, which does not have a brake. I think I'll bed it and get a brake on it now that it looks promising. I like the A-max too.

I like brakes....with a back that is bolted together and shoulders that are pinned and a chest wired togther things can get screwed-up in a heartbeat and these cannons can hurt.

Thanks for your load info. I just htink that big frigin' case needs a t least a 160. and those 162 a-max's running 3350 from point should be promising. I'll see if I can find more of those 162 A-max's on the shelf somewhere and try that N-170 out.

I did try some 154's sptzr's also this morning a 3 1/2" vertical...at 3450.

Re: 7RUM & Vv N170

Whoa, and I thought my arthritis was bad, man I can't even compare to that. I have some 168 Berger VLD's ( orange box), that I know WILL shoot, and I also have some 162 A-Maxes, that I am am also sure that will shoot, but if I can't get her to shoot the 140's, I will load the 160class bullets and maybe turn down the heat a little,( but not to much)!!!! My son smoked a doe last summer on a crop damage hunt at 305 yards and made perfect spine shot. DRT. I have never used A-maxes for hunting, but they do shoot. Those would be the candidate for the n-170, or the 168's. Keep in touch and let me know how you make out. Keep in touch ! AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL 7STW.
