Re: 300 RUM, 168 grn TSX, 106grns Retumbo

Working on a load for the 208 A-max right now, but, I am going to try the 180 E-tips that Mark likes. I do agree the barrel would be pretty short lived if I contined to scream the 168s. Was just playing with what I had, now going heavier and slower. I am going to rebarrel this summer when I get back to work and the play account gets fuller. I originally bought this rifle to have either Shawn or Kirby build me an edge but I may have one of them just rebarrel to the same calibre, just not sure yet.

I do plan on trying the 190 and 210 berger vld when I can find them. They should be in before X-mas at the local Sporting Goods store or Spokane when I get over there. Thanks for your reply. Jeff

The 210's are still available at Midway. I have the same rifle as the OP. Mine likes RL22 for the lighter bullets.
