    Nice selection of componets for your rifle, you are going to love it. What bullets, powder, primers, and brass are you looking at starting with?

    Re: New 7mm SAUM Rifle Build

    I've done some reading over at 6br.com and will start w/ 7828, H-4831 and RE-22 as far as powders and I have all the Bergers 140, 168, 180 VLD's. Remington brass has been weight sorting and neck checking but since my smith does not have tight neck reamer so I won't be turning them yet.I'm using some old stock Winchesters magnum primers but when I switch to the stick powders I'm thinking of trying the Fed 210's

    Any suggestions?

    For close range hunting I have been using 139 Hornady's BTSP out of a factory 7 saum and either HV-100 or Superperformance which meters really well but haven't played w/ the chrony to see any performance like I'll need at longer ranges

    My buddy with a 7saum has had excellent results with H4831SC and 180berger hybrids.
