    Yes I have read alot about this gun never took off and so on but I received my sendero with the fluted bull barrel for Fathers day 200q and up till now have been able to hit a 4 inch square out to 400 yards with factory ammo. I have bought all the reloading equipment need . What I'm wanting to know is the anybody on the site that had a 7mm ultra with a load that they suggest I start with? My factory ammo is a 140 grain bonded bullet that runs out of muzzle sty 3375.

    Thanks in advanve

    my go to load for one of my 7 rum's is 94 grains of retumbo rem 9 1/2 primers 168 berger vld loaded at 3.67 coal runs 3300 fps in a 26 in sendero barrel. this rifle has a bit of a crooked throat that i can see with my hawk eye. The lands are heavy on one side of the freebore, and it is very picky what it shoots but with that load it shoots at around 3/4 minute, one day I may re barrel it but it hunts pretty good with that load

    I would start at 91 and work up but that is not a hard load in my rifle and my brass lives :)
