I am loading for a friends new Remington 300 RUM. HS precision stock, trigger down to 2.5#, Leupold vx2 6-18, Target, Matte. Leupold base and rings. I have used H-1000 for all my loads in my own .300 RUM but thought of trying Retumbo. Now I have the oppurtunity so what works? I know theres a couple people out there that have some pet loads with Retumbo and the 200g Accubond. I am going to finish breaking in his barrel, then start loading up some test rounds. Looking for 1/2"- 3/4" 3100-3200fps.
Location: The rifle range, or archery range or behind the computer in Alaska
Re: 300 RUM,Retumbo,200g Accubond
I tried 95.0 grains of RETUMBOin my 300 RUM with the 178 AMAX and that made for a VERY tight extraction. Velocity was 3400 FPS.
Hot lot perhaps??
I guess depending on the rifle's tolerances I would start a bit lower just to start.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
I've packed 85 grains of retumbo and the 200 AB for 3006 fps and well under MOA. Is 94 grains considered over max load? Will be doing some loading this weekend and would like to get the volocity up, but not loose the accuracy. What barrel lengths are you fellas running?
