    found this on reloadersnest Load 11147 detail in caliber 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum

    My brother has a 7mmRUM but i cant get him talked into trying the Bergers. I think once he does he will not be dissapointed. Anyway good luck with yours and post some pics of it and some targets when you get her dialed in.

    My buddy is loading 90gr of Retumbo with the 168gr bergers. This load is scary accurate in his 7RUM. I have had great success with retumbo also. Also heard H1000 is great in the RUM's. Good luck

    My recipe is :
    168 Berger HVLD
    F215
    RL25 = 84.0
    COAL = 3.650
    Ogive = 2.993
    M.V. = 3200
    I get a consistant 1/2" group with an accurized sporter w. factory barrel.
    Hope this helps.
