Congrats on the 300rum I have had one for several months now not anywhere as good as the one you are building but never the less
a very accurate tool. It is mod. 116sak Savage, first Savage I ever owned but it will not be the last, it likes most bullets
that I have tried, don't get the great vel
barrel is a bit short to suit me 26" You will enjoy your new rifle this is a very effecient case to work with!

Re: Put my hands on new 300 Ultra today!

I noticed that federal is now producing 300rum with a nickle case. I havent seen brass only for sale yet. By the way my 300rum in a PSS has produced a .160 3 shot group at 100. The load is 200 gr smk. 102.5 gr. H870 and fed 215m.

George.

Lite Tac,

Welcome aboard! It looks like I have a lot to look forward to. It looks like by the time I get my stock it will be around May 1st. I cant wait. I have never shot past 1k. This rifle will hopfully help me get past that mark! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Put my hands on new 300 Ultra today!

Michael,

Shooting a 300rum is definatly a step up. When ranges get past 800 yards, you still have the control over your hits. I have only shot to 1350 so far. With a 20moa base, I still have plenty of elevation in my scope. I am currently using a 16X super sniper, but have just purchased a leupold 6.5-20 M1 LR. At the same 1350, my buddy with an extremely accurate 308 vss, who also has a 20moa base and a great long range scope,(he can out shoot me to 800) had all of his elevation dialed in, and had to hold three feet above the target. He only hit it one out of ten shots. I think this was because his bullets had started to tumble like you have mentioned in another post. For anyone wanting to get a great low cost rig for over 1000yards, this was my formula.

1. PSS in 300rum 725.00
2. 16X super sniper scope from swfa 299.00
3. Leupold long range base 20moa 20.00
4. Leupold 30mm rings 30.00
5. Harris bipod 60.00
6. "Hits at 1350 yards when your buddy cant, Priceless!

George.

P.S. Thanks for the welcom.

Re: Put my hands on new 300 Ultra today!

Yeah, I have been out several times latley shooting the "extreemly accurate" 308. It will make first round hits in the middle of a sheet of paper (8x11") at 700 and 800 yards and groups around 2-4". It will get me within a few inches at 1k and has grouped as well as 3.5" and as bad as 12" depending on wind. I would like not have to work as hard to shoot them there groups at that range. It is laborious to try and dope the wind with a bullet that takes over 1.8 seconds to reach its destination. Thats the price I pay for living at sea level and in the cold FREAKING air!

My 26" K&P barreled M700 in .300 RUM will do 3200fps with 95.5 gr of Retumbo and a 200 gr Accubond. It is an awesome round and kills like lightning... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
