No, I have never gotten into it, though to be honest the brass could probably benefit from it. I have yet to push my rum past 700 but have no problems keeping sub half moa out to this distance. But I do plan to start turning and anealing case necks.

I was wondering does a factory sendero have the right twist for the 240gr matchkings or are you guy's shooting these bullets in custom barrells?

The 240gr stabilize fine in a 10 twist, which is the norm for factory rem700's in 300rum. A 9 or 9.5 would be optimal.

Re: What is your favorite .300RUM load?

I just got through working up a load for my Krieger-barreled 300 RUM. I didn't want to shoot it a lot working up a load, so I only tried two bullets, the 208 Hornady and the 210 Berger. Bergers shot best and did so with 94 grains of Retumbo with the bullet seated just touching the rifling. I used Remington brass from Cabela's, which had less than .001 difference in neck thickness. The barrel is a 28-incher, chrono said 3,175 FPS, best three-shot groups at 100 yards were .175 and at 500 yards 1.963 inches.

96.0 of RE-25, FED215m, 180 Accubonds
Also
96.0 of H-1000, FED215m, 168 Nosler Combined Tech.

both do over 3200 fps and shoot nice clover leafs.

Many use heavier bullets. I have not gotten the 210 Bergers to shoot as well from a Sendero as these loads. However, Project Next will include a Krieger barrel with a little faster twist. I have very high expectations for that project.

Good luck

Sounds like a good project. I am probably going to rebarrel mine with a 30"Hart in a fluted sendero contour, with probably a 9 twist in a manners stock.
should be fun.
