Re: .300 Rum

In my sps 300rum is where I was using my 185 gr Bergers with retumbo and just wasn't getting the accuracy I was with the 180 sciroccos with a charge of 101 grs of retumbo. I can't remember what they cronoed at but it was either right at 3400 or some change over. In my custom rig I'm working with the 230 gr.

    With the 208 A-Max my best so far has been just under 3/4" at 300yds. Still working with the 230 Hybreds, so far at 100 just a hair over 1/2". I think they have better in them. I got a good deal on 500 of the 230's a while back so I am having fun working up a load to see how they will launch at ELR. My go to for the RUM is the 208's for the $ savings. I am going to be using the 230's ( If they shoot well ) in a 300 Lapua with a 34" Lilja that is coming my way shortly.......

    What is Trevor's turn around time on a gun now? What are his prices up to now for a full build? I have a friend wanting to build something.
