Anyone have a good load for the 300 Ultra pushing CR 216s?

Re: 300 RUM and Clinch River 216s

start at 88.0gr Retumbo and work up,..maybe start at 87.0gr's. I started at 88.0gr and when I got to 89.0 and 90.0gr's I was getting .2moa and even better at 100yds from a 1:10 30" PacNor select finished at .975" on a 700rem action in a tooley MBR. I am very impressed so far,..am waiting to try them at the next match I can get to. ES and SD very low with this set-up. Seat at or very close to the lands and see what you get with it. Mine put the 216's to sleep at 100yds,..I was amazed. ~3200fps [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: 300 RUM and Clinch River 216s

Thanks for your reply. I will be using a 33" Lilja 3 groove 11 twist for this project. Tight neck, tight chamber should make a good long range shooter. Can't wait to take it up the road to the 1K range.
