    I just purchased a 7mm rum and am looking for a starting load. Also I use
    Bergers in my 300 wm and 7mm rm with good results, however my son read that these bullets do not perform well in the rum due to the higher velocities. Any input on these issues is appreicated

    These two loads both give me 1/2 moa in my 7RUM.
    #1. 168 vld , 84 gr RL25, Fed 215, 3.650 COAL = 3200 Vel

    #2. 180 VLD, 87 gr Retumbo, Fed 215, 3.665 COAL = 3160 Vel
    This Coal just barely fits in the mag

    My shooter is an accurized factory rig with a 26" tube.
    I'd start a little under these and work up. Hope this helps.
