Looking for some Retumbo for my 7mm RUM. I can’t seem to luck up on finding it. Don’t need but 3-4 pounds.

That's probably one of the top 3 scarcest powders to find at present I would say.
That, RL25, and RL15 are unobtainium right now. I did see RL22 and IMR 7828SC in stock today and either of those will work in place of Retumbo. Maybe not cut bugholes like your pet load does, but its in the burn range and will make your gun go BOOM!

I’ve got some RL 22 and IMR 7828 but never used it in my 7mm RUM. I’ve always liked Retumbo for the fact you can shoot 140-160gr bullets and get the case capacity in The mid-upper 90%. I always try to stay above 94% on my case capacity.

I used to load 7RUM for my little brother with 162 Hornady and RL22 and it worked great. That was before they made RL25 though so I never tried it.

I've got a lb of RL 25. Would sell to someone if they could pick it up in person. New unopened.
That is very generous of you.
I'd take you up on that myself, but would feel guilty, as I know there are others needing it worse.
Soon as I can find it in a larger single lot, I'll be getting some RL-25.

But now, if you have a pound of magnum primers . . . . . :)
