RE: 7mm ultra mag
I have a Remington 700 in 7mm RUM. Used it last season on a Mule Deer/ Elk hunt in Colorado. Dropped a nice 4x4 mullie at 210 yards using a 160gn Nosler Partition. Now, Remington has dropped the Nosler line in their RUMs. Not sure if this was Remington, or Nosler making the decision, but what I heard was the partitions were blowing apart under the extreme velocity these cartridges produce. So, to my knowledge Remington currently is only loading the 140 gn Core lokt Ultra for the 7mm RUM. Very disappointing for a non-reloader. I filed a complaint with Remington explaining that most hunter heading out for Elk, Moose or even Bear would prefer a heavier load then a 140 gn CLU, and what is their plans to produce more loads. Not heard back, or read anything in their news letters. As you know I"™m not a reloader, nor do I plan to be one at this time. I invested over $700.00 bucks in this rifle, and at the time of purchase Remington was loading 140gn CL & Partitions, 160gn Partitions and 175gn Swift A-Frame loads of different manufactures bullets. A nice selection to choice from based on what you plan to hunt. Don"™t know if this round will last or not, but if you going to invest in a 7mm RUM, reloading should be in you plans"¦..
