Congratulations remingtonman! I've been shooting the 300RUM for a couple of years now and I love it! For your elk and bear I'd pick up some different bullets....I hear the new Nosler Accubonds are the way to go but I haven't tried them yet.You might want to try looking at the www.reloadernest.com
for some loads,they have some excellent ones there.Here's a few of my loads to get you started:
1) 96.0 gr H-1000, Fed 215 primer, 180gr B-tip
2)95.1gr RL-25,Fed 215 primer, 180gr BTSP (3244 fps)
3)95.0 gr RL-25, Fed 215 primer, 180gr Barnes XXX (3389 fps)
4) Promise not to laugh at this one!
82gr RL - 22, WRLM primer, 220 gr Round Nose (2910 fps)
5) 91.5 gr H-1000, Fed 215 primer, 220SMK,(3090 fps)
PLEASE REMEMBER THESE ARE MAX LOADS!! BACK THEM OFF 10%.ALL LOADS WERE BACKED OFF.080 OFF THE LANDS.
I have also noticed that my H-1000 loads are with the older version of that powder. The newer H-1000 Extreme seems to be a tad hotter. I subsituted it straight across and found my accuracy dropped off and I gained velocity and the pressure signs that go with it.You should take note of which version your going to use.My rifle by the way is the Sendero SF.I have also started playing with the Retumbo powder. I haven't settled on a load yet but I was getting good groups with 90.5 gr Retumbo,Fed 215 primer, 220 SMK.I feel I could go up a grain or so as my velocity was 2930 fps with no signs of pressure.I'll be trying that in the next few days. Hope something here works for you. Good luck in the hunting season.
