300 Rum/200 Gr Ab

For those of you who would like to know.

300 RUM
200 Grain Accubond
95 Grains of Retumbo
Remington Brass
Remington 9 1/2m Primers
6300 ft elevation
27 degrees (Brrrrr)

Shot 3 with a warm barrel and they averaged 3215 fps and grouped a .75 inch. Think I could shrink my group if I wasnt shivering (LOL) so bad. Some have posted 95.5 grains pushing them at around 3180, I was amazed they were over 3200. Also NO signs of over pressure when inspecting the brass, think I have a new elk load WOOOO HOOOOOOO

That is the exact same load that I shoot. I am pushing that bullet at exactly 3200 out of a 26 inch shilen. I went out yesterday and shot a five inch group at 700 hundred yards! This is not match accuracy but will work very well on any deer or elk alive!

I have been shooting the 165 ab out of my 300 RUM, I have taken quite a few animals from 100 to 600 yards. I was thinking of going up to 200's, have any of you shot the lighter bullets. What are your thoughts. I am kind of new to this long range game. thanks
