I use 78 gr. RL 22 in my .300 Jarrett with 200 gr MK. Fast and accurate. This is also a max load in my rifle, and I drop 3gr. when it's hot out.

Re: 300 RUM - Nosler or Sierra Gameking

I started using the 300 ultra mag this year and I am really happy with it. I killed a Dall Sheep in Alaska at 576 yds and a Whitetail in PA at 703 yds. I use 100gr of Retumbo 180 gr Nosler BT, Fed 215m primers, OAL 3.600. This load in my rifle is just shy of 3500fps., 26"HART barrel.

Mark in Utah,

The data you post sounds very interesting. Is there an online source for it? Or can you buy it anywhere? Please post some more info about how to get a look at the full experiment.

thanks,
gfp
