Re: .300 Rum

What load/length were you using I couldn't get ther 185s to shoot in mine. Sitting on 2 1/2 boxes of them. Lol I stepped it up to the 230gr Bergers and it shoots really good!

Re: .300 Rum

Great looking gun. My 300RUM really likes the 208 A-Max and at about 1/2 the price of the Berger it is a consideration. Don't get me wrong, the Bergers are real good also. I am working through a batch of the 230 Hybreds that are looking real good. Not as good as the 208's right now but I am getting 3000 and still messing with seating. Best of luck ...love the big 30's.

Re: .300 Rum

What load are you using with the 230gr pills?

89.5 Retumbo, Fed 215 mag. match primers going 3000fps out of a 27" Shilen select match H.V. 10 twist. Start at 87 Retumbo and see how it goes. At 2800fps you are still supersonic at 1800yds.

Re: .300 Rum

I got my best accuracy at 90 grs of retumbo with no pressure issues. What is your group size?

Re: .300 Rum

Nice looking gun! Trevor did the build on my 338 rum and I couldn't be happier.

Re: .300 Rum

Thanks Dave. I almost turned my .300 rum into .338 rum but decided I need one of those also lol. I am just waiting on bolt fluting @ this point. I am ready to test drive it for sure!

I will post pics as soon as its complete. I have a buddy who had one built a month ago to the exact specs of mine. He is shooting 96.0 h1000 3.058 comparator length 215 fed primer & 185 booger vld. He has been making nice bug hole groups but running a bit slower than where I run mine. He has been right in the 3250 fps range.
