    Any one try Rutumbo for a load and did you have any luck? Im shooting 180 grain berger. If so what would be a good starting point.

    Unfortunately, I have never owned, shot, or reloaded for a 7mm Dakota. I have heard great things about the cartridge itself, though. Sorry if I came off as being a dick, I was just trying to be funny...Looking back I realized just now that I left out the smilie face. No harm intended. :D

    use search and look for my post of my MCR 7mm dakota.

    I used Retumbo and shot only the 180 VLDS.

    3175FPS pout of a 32" pipe

    I sold that particular rifle however I'm currently buiding another
