    I'm about to start load data on a wildcat that's very close to 7SAUM so that's the load data I'm going to use. I'll be using 166 ATips initially, then switching to 180 Hybrids so II need data for both. I'm starting with N165 but Vihtavuori doesn't have 7SAUM data. Whatever you guys can offer would be great. The rifle has a 28" 8.5t Krieger screwed onto a SA Archimedes, thus I'm limited to ~2.940

    I went through all 15 pages of the 7SAUM page but there's very little mention of N165 and even less hard data.

    Case capacity should be very close to 280/280 AI.

    Maybe look at data for those two.
    You'll probably find a bunch for 140-160gr projectiles. Hopefully there will be some for the heavier stuff.

    Hornady's 11th has N160 data encompassing 166 ATips but no N165. N160 is a few spot faster so I could start with that. 52.8 (2600) to 57.6 (2800) at 2.825 with a 24" barrel.

    Sounds like a good plan.

    We're headed back out on Friday.
    Will you be able to make it?
