Re: Need 7mm Dakota loads!

For grins you should try some RL17. That could be a good powder in that cartridge. It might even match or exceed the 7RUM. In my 300 WSM the charge was 1 grain more than H4350. You could call Dakota and I believe they'll have load data for H4350.

The 7 Dakota is a great cartridge, would love to have one someday. Let us know how it does for you.

Good shooting,

Re: Need 7mm Dakota loads!

IIRC the 7mm Dakota is the ballistic twin of the 7STW: therfore, the same starting loads should work. Retumbo seems to be the consensus choice for heavy bullets in the 7 STW

189 cauterucio, 74.5 retumbo, 215m = 3025 from 28"
180 Berger, 76 retumbo, 215m = 3105

Both loads are max, according to me, in my rifle, here.
