Get a box of 200 gr accubonds and be happy!! You can play w/different bullets till your blue in the face. The 200 gr accubond will offer you everything you need for every game you will be taking. Of course if your like me, you'll still try 15 different bullets!!!

My SAKO 75 does 3170 or so with 200 AB and 94 gr of Retumbo. Groups are (best so far) .292 at 100 and .675" at 300 yards. Here is a pix of the 300 yard group

Re: 300RUM reloading data for long range shooting

As far as bullet type goes, I love the Barnes TSX but be warned they are about 10 bucks more a box then the Accubonds. I personally have been shooting 180g TSX w/ 96.5 grains of Retumbo... I'll probably go into the 200grains + next year, but for now deer season is looming and I'm gonna settle on a load for this load for the year [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
I've shot out to 800 so far with little problem which is about as far as I'll take a shot for deer season. Past that you'll definately want the higher bc 200+ grain bullets for longer shots.

On a side note I finally put a brake on the RUM and wow its so much nicer to shoot!
