300 rum-200gr accubond-retumbo powder

How fast would that combination be going loaded to the max in a 26 in barrel?

    3200, should be possible, I get 3160-70 with 94gr of retumbo with 210gr bullets. Start around 90gr and work your way up, the accubond has a little more bearing surface than the vld type bullets so pressure may come a little sooner. I use rem 9 1/2m primers.

    When I was hunting with the .300 RUM, my go to load was with the 200 gr AB. I was getting 3,225 fps with 92 gr of Retumbo and a 28" barrel. I never used the 210 Berger as I always carried the rifle in Grizzly country.

    I get 3220 fps out of my 28" Hart barrel 1-10 twist. I also am in grizzly country often and shoot the 200 AB mostly for big game. I like a strong bullet. For riding around shooting long range at deer and antelope I shoot the 208 Amax. Took a couple around 1000 yards last season with it.
