reloading the 300RUM with Berger VLD's

I have been loading with accubond 180 grain but thinking about stepping it up to around 200 grain bullets and was wondering how many grains to start out with. I have been using H1000. Even thinking just stepping it up to 200 gr accubonds any advice welcome

To take advantage of higher BC's, I like using Accubond 200 and Berger 210 gr. My 16 y/o son (William), last Saturday took a doe at 482 yards using the 210 grainer.

Use info. at your own risk. Be careful and good luck!

For the 210 gr. Berger I use 91.3 gr. of Retumbo for a Velocity of 2979. You can easily bring it up to 3100 f/sec or so. Start at 87.0 grains and bring it up very carefully. I'm using a Remington Sendero SFII and a Remington 300 RUM LSS.

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!!

---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
