Re: Loading 300 RUM questions

What types of pressures are you seeing? Just a guess (no quickload data), but wouldn't you be well over 65,000? My rifle may go boom out the back instead of the front. I think that's the magical number for a factory Remy...

The highest psi I've seen loading data for was like 64K from 86 grains of H1000.

Re: Loading 300 RUM questions

Hodgdons web-site list 89 grains as max for the 220 grain bullet so 89.5 is not out of line with the 210. I believe when I called a Hodgdon tech he said 90 was max with the 210.
I'm using Nosler brass and people claim it's soft but I'm on my 3rd reload and the primer pockets have not opened up and no ejector marks show on the brass.
