Re: New 7mm SAUM Rifle Build

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.
