    I have recently acquired a 7MM RUM and got my first range time with it this weekend. I had a series of loads to shoot and got up to 93 grains of Retumbo under a 160 grain Accubond lit with a Federal 215.

    Unfortunately I was not able to chrono due to high winds blowing the sky screens over several times but as long as I let the barrel cool between shots I was in the neighborhood of 3/4" 3 shot groups at 200 yards.

    I have absolutely no pressure signs but Nosler lists this as a max load for Retumbo, albeit with a different primer (Rem 9 1/2 I think) .

    What are you guys shooting?
