Re: New 7mm SAUM Rifle Build

I've done some reading over at 6br.com and will start w/ 7828, H-4831 and RE-22 as far as powders and I have all the Bergers 140, 168, 180 VLD's. Remington brass has been weight sorting and neck checking but since my smith does not have tight neck reamer so I won't be turning them yet.I'm using some old stock Winchesters magnum primers but when I switch to the stick powders I'm thinking of trying the Fed 210's

Any suggestions?

For close range hunting I have been using 139 Hornady's BTSP out of a factory 7 saum and either HV-100 or Superperformance which meters really well but haven't played w/ the chrony to see any performance like I'll need at longer ranges

My buddy with a 7saum has had excellent results with H4831SC and 180berger hybrids.

You are killiing me, I'm waiting for "the call" myself on my barreled action from benchmark,,,very similar to yours,

Man, brass is in short supply right now, but have 50 pieces of rem, and 50 pieces of nosler 300saum I necked down. Not my favorite, just because you loose a lot of neck length

Good looking rifle!

I started load development yesterday and here is the best so far
59 gr H-4831 180 Berger Hunting VLD and CCI BR-2 Primer
I think it has potential looks to be about .4" at 100 yds
