Found a load for my 7mm Ultra Mag



Finally found a load that shoots great in my Remington LSS 7mm Ultra Mag with a Magna-Brake.

Bullet: 140gr Nosler Ballistic Tip
Powder: Retumbo (pm me for the exact amount since its a tad warm)
Primer: CCI Magnum Rifle
Brass: Remington

    Can I ask why you are shooting that bullet instead of a heavier one?

    That's the same load my friend shoots in his 7RUM except he uses 4831SC. Not sure of the grains but the 140NBT shoots great in it. His has a Hart barrel and brake. This year he shot a whitetail doe in the head at 489 yards. Not a good practice in my opinion but he wanted a to prove a point I guess.

    Well ever since I bought the gun several years ago the most prevalent factory ammo was either the 140gr core-lokt or 140gr Nosler Partition and since I never had any problems killing deer with either bullet I figured I'd try these in reloads since they should flatten out the trajectory but time will tell whether they are too soft for these velocities.
