    45-70 and 7mmSaum

    45-70 was a pleasure to shoot with Win 300gn...went through 20 before I knew it. 7mmSaum shot a nice .55" inch group too.

    Will do. At 67gn now so should be fine...1gn inc for 10gn drop is a good rule of thumb.

    My saum went well with the 150 LRAB's and 2213sc

    I'm using 65gr 2213sc and 140 accubonds. Getting about 3000fps. Not a max load.

    I use a 150gr SGK as a mag-fit spook & shoot load in my 7SAUM. With 67gr of 2217 it shoots ragged one hole groups right at 3,000 fps. For long shots i single feed an Amax.

    Bonus is they both shoot to the same 100 yard zero
