7mm Remington Ultra Mag (RUM) 18 Grain Berger VLD-H- 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 introduced the 7MM Remington Ultra Magnum (RUM) in the 168 grain Berger VLD-Hunting round, with the same 100% hand-loading techniques as our other calibers. Our loading techniques and extremely tight tolerances are only matched by passionate hand-loaders in their own loading rooms. Our consistencies box to box and lot to lot, are created by continuous testing at the range- adjusting varied powder and brass lot formulas to match exact velocities and points of impact as the last time we loaded this caliber. Exact seating depths and our proprietary load formulas produce a round of ammunition you can count on for accuracy and dependability each and every time- and at that critical moment in the field when it all comes down to the shot!
The Berger VLD Hunting bullet line features Very Low Drag (VLD) bullets that have the highest possible ballistic coefficient designed for 300 yards or more, the design incorporates a sharp nose that allows the bullet to penetrate 2″ to 3″ before it starts to expand. After the initial expansion, the bullet will shed between 40% and 85% of its weight as shrapnel into the surrounding tissue (internal organs). The combination between the shrapnel and the hydrostatic shock produces a massive wound cavity within the vital area that will be 13″ – 15″ long. This massive wound cavity results in the animal dropping fast since most go into shock after such a tremendous blow. Those animals that don’t go down immediately will soon succumb to blood pressure loss and/or organ failure producing a quick ethical kill.
