I have heard a lot of good things about velocity performance with the retumbo and 7mm mag, but were you getting descent ES numbers to go with it?
Also, being in the early stages of my reloading career, what kind of ES do most of you consider to be acceptable for hunting purposes? Obviously, the lesser the better, but is there kind of a range you try to keep under as far as "acceptability" would be, so to speak?
