    I am looking for some load help with my 7mm rm. I would like to use the 150 sicocco. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Levi

    I use 67.0gn RL22 and BR2's. With my Sendero this load printed under 1/2" and ran 3100+fps. Start low and work up. JohnnyK.

    Thanks Johnnyk,
    Have you tried Retumbo? I have heard that is also a good choice.

    I have tried it with the 168gn Bergers in my 7Mag. I can only say that with the load components I tried it did not give me the accuracy I wanted. That being said, I do intend to give it another try. JohnnyK.

    69gr acc magpro with the 160sgk is well under pressure, and very accurate.

    With the sciroco I get 3280 from 68 grains of rl22. Factory stock A bolt 2. The bullet is seated to the end of the magazine. I have had excellent terminal velocity on elk to 550 yards. I could probably shoot and kill free with it but haven't had the chance to.
