Aside from being illegal, you'd better really trust that person!

Just a word of caution.

 

7mm Rem Ultra Mag is one of the riskiest calibers, (chamberings Cdog), to reload. Due to it's relatively large case capacity, you should only use the slowest of rifle powders,( H1000 is a good choice). More so than most other rifle cartridges, there is a serious risk of over pressure if the wrong components are used.

 

Make sure whoever reloads your cartridges is not a novice...I can't stress this enough!!

 

I personally would not fire any 7mm RUM I didn't reload myself.

Yeah? so its a big risk to get 7mm ultras reloaded eh? It was because ive been to a few stores and nobody seems to have 7mm RUM bullets i went to fredericton outfitters and they had a bag of 100 7mm RUM casings and the guy working tried to sell me them and told me to ask someone to reload them from me. 

Im better off buying whatever i see i suppose? I picked up a box of 150 Scriocco bonded ones last week in Maine that was the only box they had at Cabelas and I ended up picking up a box at Better Buy Sports of 175 Grains for $74.99 I thought it was crazy for that price but I ended up buying them as moose hunting is just around the corner.

Thanks

No having it reloaded or getting into reloading for it yourself isn't dangerous and can be a very rewarding, what is dangerous is letting just anyone else reload for it or shooting whatever load someone else has for a 7mm ultra mag. You want a load developed for your rifle, or a very mildly loaded round, as anything else may result in dangerous pressures.

This is another reason why handloaded ammunition can be vastly superior to factory loads, Factory ammo is loaded to perform reasonably well in any gun, where as handloaded ammo can be tailored to your rifle.

Why not just buy a 270? Shooting would be a whole lot easier and cheaper, plus your game will never know the difference.

 

I wouldn't own a 7RUM if I wasn't a handloader.

So Jim you've started reloading these now? I went out and bought dies after you contacted me looking for some rounds...hope you did your research because you can easily over pressure this excessively overbore cartridge.

 

SuperCub I wouldn`t own a 7mmRUM period:)

I wouldn't own one here, but out west where shots may be longer, maybe. I'm sticking to my 270 or 257Roberts here.

Far better choices than 7mmRUM for any target at any distance; but that's a debate for a different forum. Buddy is just trying to get some moose hunting rounds for the rifle he's got now.

Not for him. He's already got one last week in NS. I guess he needs a more regular supply of ammo.

It wasn't this particular Jim That was looking for 7mm Ultra Mag ammo, I don't own one and the 2 people I know that do own them do reload for it. I have gotten into reloading fairly recently, roughly the last 16 months and have been considering a semi custom 7mm Magnum for a long range rig next summer, but if I go that route the Original 7mm Remington Magnum will be what I get.
