You may find that you can go beyond 60.0 grains of IMR 4350, to 62 gr or so. Work up and find a good load with those bullets.
That's kind of what I was thinking. Was looking at starting at 56. And working my way up. I'm mainly trying to find a good brush round just in the 7mm RM platform. That's kind of what I like about this reloading stuff. I can experiment with bullets that are on the market.

Who knows? I may not need to get a 30-30 if I can find a good 100 range round with this Hornady bullet. The furthest I would have to shoot on my lease is maybe 125-150 yards at max. Most the time it's 50-75/100 with a lot of brush around.
