My 300 rum likes the 210 vlds going 2985 to 3000 fps. That is with 90grs, i did try it with up to 92grs and it went 3050 to 3075 but accuracy went way down.

The accuracy wasn't horrible, it was approx 1.25 at 100yds. The 90grs I sacrificed for accuracy. It puts 5 shots just over a 1/2 inch. If I would have messed with the seating depth it probably wouldve tighted up.

I load my RUM with 93.5 grains of Retumbo behind a 210 seated .015 off the lands. Velocity is approximately 3180 FPS and has proven to hold nearly 1/2 MOA out to 1,000 when I'm doing everything right.

I have a custom barrel on my rifle so the chambering gives me 3.035" to the ogive and approximately 3.7" COAL.
