Retumbo and the 210's are a perfect combo for your rig.

My best results for the berger 210 VLDH have been with 93.5 gr RL25. Gone up to 97 but the groups got bigger.

88 grains of H1000 works great in mine-----3 inches at 600 yards constantly.
Just shot a rockchuck this last weekend at 1035 yards.

Re: Loading for a .300 RUM

I shoot a 208 Amax in my RUM. Retumbo may get you more velocity, but with a higher ES than H-1000. My extreme spread is in the single digits using H-100. Im shooting over 3kfps. Right now barely over, but im trying to work up a super accurate load and that velocity is working really well for me, with an extremely low spread.
