Alan,

I've been shooting a SAUM for the last 6 months or so and will be happy to help if you need any. I am certainly not the expert of all but have had some really good advice given to me that may be of assistance. I'll PM you my details if you'd like to discuss.

Have started breaking barrel in over last few days.. So far i have found the 7mm saum to be not a fussy cartridge at all, but its still early days i know and ive only managed 39 shots through the new barrel.
Ive been just shooting a very mild load to fireform cases,
IMR7828
FED 210M
SIERRA 168GR MK "jammed"
REM BRASS

Im only using 168 to break barrel in then i plan to switch over to a 175 or 180gr sierra

I think photos below show a good coning effect so i thought id share it.. all groups shot at 100m
