reloading data needed 7mm RUM

I have been looking for a starting load for a:

7mm RUM
Nosler 175 grain Partition
Federal 215 Primer
Retumbo or IMR 7828

Other powder suggestions are welcome.

Thanx in advance for your help.

    What are you planning to hunt and at what range?

    This info is for 175gr pills. I would start with Retumbo or R25 all have been good performers in my 300UM. I tested some 8700 last week 106gr behind a 220 MK and was pleased 3042fps out of a 26' tube.8 in groups @100.

    A lot of guys like to load the light bullets in the 7RUM. I see no point in it. That 175gr Partition is the way to go if you ask me good BC and Superior SD= big penetration not to many critters that will stand up to that in NA. The 160gr slug would be as light as I would go with the RUM but that is just my option. Welcome to the board lots of knowledgeable people here. Good luck.

    Retumbo From 86.0 grains to 91.5 grains
    IMR-7828 From 71.6 grains to 80.5 grains
    RL-25 From 76.3 grains to 88.6 grains
    RL-22 From 71.7 grains to 80.6 grains
    AA-8700 From 81.4 grains to 103.0 grains
    H-1000 From 71.7 grains to 87.5 grains
    H-4831 From 72.9 grains to 81.4 grains
