Re: What Bullet for 7mm RUM?

I'm getting over 3400 fps with 89 grains of Retumbo and the 160 AB's with a 30" barrel (this is not a max load for my rifle).

    Just curious, but has anyone ever tried loading the Berger VLD's where they will still fit in a standard Remington magazine? I know Walt says to either touch them or bury them .010" in the lands, but didn't know how accuracy would be seated farther in. I know by doing this it will take up a little more case capacity, but the OAL of the 168gr berger is just barely longer than the Accubond. Let me know.

    Try 94 gr. H-Retumbo w/ the 168 bergers or 89 gr. H-Retumbo with the 180 bergers. My sendero prefers the 180's over the 168's but both shoot under 3/4 MOA at 600 yrds, as long as i don't have to dope for much wind. I seated mine to 3.65 and they do fit in the magazine.

    I might just have to give the Bergers if they shoot that good in your gun. Have you ever shot these bullets at anything a short range, less than about 200? How's they do? Thanks

    I have very good luck with 162 grain Amax's sitting on top of 85 grain of RL 22. Not the fastest load in the world but shoots very well. I have had good clean kills from 46 yards to 480 yards.
