    I have a question for the guys shooting 7RUMS or that have loaded for them. I'm looking a load for some 140 BT's I have never shot the 140 BT in this gun and was looking a load to work with hopefully using H-1000 powder or RL 25 being I haven't had time to get anymore Retumbo and I just used the rest of my H-50BMG loading some 168 match kings and some more 169.5 wildcats for a little shooting adventure sunday ( weather permiting ). Will be shooting the new gong we just built ( post some pics later ) and some other targets. I have this whole box of 140 BT's laying around and need a good load! Help please!! Thanks in advance!

    I used 92.0g Retumbo, F-215s in my 7 RUM SSF Sendero. These were moly NBTs so back off.

    Thanks db! I figured that retumbo was the way to go but I'm out! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif I guess I will have to hit the road tomorrow and grab a pound. I've been putting off buying any powder because I'm trying to get a big order together for powder valley so I can save a little cash! Thanks for your help!

    RETUMBO: has got to be the cleanest burning powder I've ever shot. I do not remember any powder that didn't at least smoke the necks. But not this stuff. Wish I had a pallet of kegs of this powder. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
