I had really good luck in both my 300 win mag and 300 RUM. Great groups at 500 yards 3" or less consistently. With H4831 it seemed to like the lower load and Retumbo shot towards the max load. Hope they work good on game!

Thanks Bill,

I'm going to start with 70 gr. Of H4831SC and work up to near max of 72.5...do you recall what your best load was I.e should I start my work up somewhere close to but under 70? Have you hunted elk with your Win Mag?

Regards to you as well,

Don

I will try to look the load up tomorrow and PM you. I have used my 300 win mag for elk but it was with 165 Nosler BT's at about 3050 fps and it racked up 5 elk all grave yard dead, all basically boom flop. I ran it slow because it was shooting under .25" and the speed worked well with the BT's for performance. I am hoping to have as good of luck with the ABLR!

The BC of the 190 gr ABLRs were tested by Applied Ballistics and came out to be 0.291 (G7) in a 10 twist barrel which is about 10% under the advertised value.
