300 ultra mag

I've been shooting retumbo powder with Burger 185 VLD with good success, But as most of us do were aways looking for some thing a bit better. Any advise on what a person may use to get under a 1/2" MOA.

    I currently am using a 220 grain SMK, backed by 90 grains of H1000, and federal 215 match primers.

    A bigger bullet in my opinion. H1000 would be my choice and some federal 215 match primers, nosler brass. I would think 230 g otm

    I'd say a bigger bullet as well. I shoot retumbo with a 210 gr berger in my 300 wm and get amazing groups.

    I would like to try the Berger 230 gr Match Hybrid Target and see how they shoot.

    I have been using H1000 to push the 230 Match Hybrid Target bullets out of one our 300 Ultra's a ton this year so far. These bullets are crazy accurate, not to mention all the other upsides of a 30 cal bullet with a B.C. Of .743!!!
