7mm Remington Ultra Mag (RUM) 162 grain Hornady ELD-X- Inspired by the Lazzeroni proprietary cartridges, Remington introduced the 7mm Remington Ultra magnum in 2000. The 7mm RUM is based on the .300 Remington Ultra Magnum (1999) which is in turn based on a grossly modified version of the unbelted 404 Jeffery’s case. The RUM was designed to produce ultra high velocities to meet the growing demand for long range hunting rifles and cartridges. The 7mm RUM is an outstanding performer on medium game, producing absolutely emphatic kills out to 800 yards and clean kills out to and beyond 1000 yards at which range speed of killing is dependent on target resistance to aid bullet expansion.
Choice Ammunition has taken our 100% hand-loading techniques and produce an extremely accurate, highly dependable round for the 7mm RUM in this load. Our loading tolerances are only matched by passionate hand-loaders in their own loading rooms. Consistent seating depths, powder charges and proprietary formulas of Choice Ammunition, make this 162 grain Hornady ELD-X round the best you can buy on the commercial market today.
The Heat Shield tip of the Hornady ELD-X bullet defies the effects of aerodynamic heating and retains its shape to provide a perfect meplat (tip) that is always the same shape. A streamlined secant ogive with optimum boattail design, plus the highly concentric AMP bullet jackets, combined with the patent pending Heat Shield tip creates a supremely accurate, high BC match bullet. ELD-Match bullet BCs are measured with Doppler radar and corrected to standard atmospheric conditions. With high velocity, 0-400 yard impact, the bullet continually expands throughout its penetration path. The thick shank of the jacket and high Interlock ring keep the core and jacket together providing 50-60% weight retention. Upon low velocity, 400+ yard impacts, the Heat Shield tip drives backward into the bullet to initiate expansion. Exhibiting conventional expansion with a large mushroom and 85-90% retained weight the bullet provides deep penetration and large wound cavities.
