JMO, but shooting a 300RUM with anything less than 180g is just not using that case very well...even a 180 is questionable. On this board, in general, folks will tend towards (or eventually learn to tend towards) the heavy for caliber, hi BC bullets. With the slow burning powders available today, some fairly impressive wind bucking accuracy and higher energy can be developed for long range shooting. Check out the energy and wind bucking numbers for a Berger 210g at 3125 fps or a 240 Sierra Matchking at 3000fps--make a little 130g look pretty pathetic at any range, especially long range. Good luck...I used to think velocity was king too. Then I spent some time here.
