a 7rum is considered an extremely overbore cartridge. generally speaking, the more overbore you get, the harder it is to keep the ES down.

Retumbo is great for velocity, but not sure i've ever heard anyone getting their lowest ES with it. usually it gives higher velocity spreads.

    Dave,
    I have two 300 RUM, all I have used is Retumbo, lots of Retumbo. Keeping the ES 15 or less has not been an issue and many times it will go in the single digits. It works good wood Federal and CCI primers. As you know, to get single numbers you have to always keep in mind not to cook the ammo in the chamber after the firs shot, specially when shooting hot loads.

    Eaglet, know of 2 others that get good results with Retumbo in their 300rum's. i've tried it in a couple big cases and know a few others that have also and like i said. generally speaking, it gives a lot of velocity but higher spreads. it's great to have several options. makes reloading much more enjoyable.

    speaking of options.....Eric, where are the 338 bullets?
