Favorite Loads for the 7mm RUM

I would like to hear from some of you 7 mm RUM shooters on what your favorite
load is.

I would like to use 160 class bullets but I am open to all loads.

I know that there is a hesitancy to give out hot loads so if this is a problem
just let me know what case,primer,bullet and type of powder.

Thanks

    JE, I load 4 different factory rifles with 160 Accubond, RR cases RR 91/9 primers and 94 grains Retumbo all shoot this load very well around 3200fps. I use 101 US869 and 175 sierra's with RR brass and 91/2 primers and this combination works well also at 3150 fps. I will be testing a new one soon with 50bmg and 175's with a 30 inch tube hoping for 3250. Hope this helps, Dave

    Thanks Dave.

    I use a lot of H 5010 and 50 BMG for the 7 stw and It should work well .

    I will wait and see how many other powders work before I start working up loads.
