Re: 300 rum-200gr accubond-retumbo powder

I am in the same speed range, with 95gr retumbo in rem brass, cci 250 primer. Personally I would stay with the accubond over the VLD. The VLD may have an advantage when you get out to 800 plus yards as it should expand at lower velocities, but the accubond is a better all around bullet at the speeds that the rum generates.

Re: 300 rum-200gr accubond-retumbo powder

My 30" bbl RUM and my brother-in-law's 26" bbl RUM both shoot 94gr Retumbo and the 200gr Accubond very well. I get 3250 out of mine, he's in the low 3100's if I remember correctly. Both rifles have taken elk past 800yds and that bullet performs very well in my opinion. Last fall my 300 also took a mule deer at 1180, and the bullet expanded very well, taking the top 1/4 of the heart off on a quartering away shot. For me it's the best bullet for deer and elk at extended ranges from what I've seen performance and accuracy wise.

3200FPS +/- about 15 ES with the 200 grain AB and Retumbo powder and Federal 215M primers and Remington brass from a 26" Hart on a 700 action that has been blue printed.
