300 RUM and Hybrid 230 gr Bergers

Has anyone shot any of the 230 gr Berger Hybrids out of their 300 RUM. If so, what kind of velocity were you getting and what kind of groups? Thanks

We have been running them out of a 30" hart tube at 3050 fps. Accuracy is really good in the 3's. I'll have more leater.

Dang, I was really hoping to build a 300 RUM using these 230 gr bergers with a 26" barrel. I was hoping to get around 3000 fps. Looks like it might be a 28"

I know it's not a 300RUM but Kirby Allen has his 300AX that I think would get you 3000 fps with the 230's in a 26in. tube

What twist are you running? I'm working up a 208 A-max load in my 26" RUM (1-10"). It is showing promise. I might as well see if the 230's will fly for me. I would be pretty close to my 208 for drop at 1k and both are within a few fps, but with 10% more energy

Im building of a remington 700, since its what I have, and a lot of people really dont like the lapua based cartridges on them. I have talked to a smith and he said its the bolt face really and not the action thats the problem. He said that opening the boltface on a typical bolt becasue of the extractor.. or something like that and that when rem made their lapua they redesigned the bolt. I wonder if I got one of remingtons lapua bolts though...... a 300 lapua improved does sound sexy
