Gentlemen,

I have a new rifle in 7mm SAUM caliber. My reloading manuals don't have that caliber/data listed. Does anyone here reload for 7mm SAUM? If so, what loads do you use and where did you get the loads?

Thank you in advance,
Gene

What data would you like? I have 5 pages of it in my Speer manual. From 110gr to 160gr bullets.

I can post a page of it if you like.

Maybe if it's not too late, you can return it for a caliber that has data for it.

I love my 7mm SAUM. 30-06 power, with better inherent accuracy and a flatter trajectory in a short action rifle.

Besides, if I ever can't find data for it I can have the chamber reamed out to 7mm WSM.:tongueout:

Load data from Nosler.

Check the Accurate PDF for Magpro powder load data for 160 and 175 grain bullets. It has load data for other bullets and powders also.

No fun in that! I have always wanted a 7SUAM. I think it's one of the better designed 7mm rounds, but it really offers little over my 280 & I also shoot a 7mm Dakota, so it's been off my radar.
Time for a new manual or two. All the current manuals have data on the 7SAUM. Why we keep buying new manuals; new carts & new powders & bullets. A good reloader stays up w/ current developements, even if we are stuck in some of our old ways.:supergrin:

Lots of info here. http://www.6mmbr.com/7mm284.html

The amount of info you find if you simply Search instead of ask is astounding. :upeyes:

The current Lyman 49 has 1-2 pages of data. Even some cast bullet data.

Thank you for the direction gentlemen. It has helped a lot. I will load mainly 150-160 grain bullets in the rifle. Those who suggested buying new manuals are right. I should do so.

Thanks again,
Gene

I was trying to remember this forum.

When I first found it again I thought it might be only for the Winchester cartridges, which is not what I remembered. Now that I look at it again it does include the Remington cartridges and I hink it is the website I remember. A lot of short magnum information here.

The Nosler manual shows H4831sc as their most accurate powder tested for both the 150 and 160 grain bullets. 62.5 grains max on the 150's, 59.5 grains max on the 160's.

Good luck.
