There can be a lot of difference between bullets of similar weight. e.g. Nosler AccuBonds are so long that a throat cut for those would have mega freebore for something like a Sierra MatchKing. Something else to consider along with twist...
I ordered a similar barrel; 300 RUM 30" 1:10
I originally wanted this barrel for 200gr AccuBonds. I have since changed my mind and am going with 200gr SMKs. Good thing for the long wait.
I keep worrying if I choose a good bullet or not and if it will shoot well.
Well, it's kind of funny. I have always been under the impression that the gun will choose the bullet and not the shooter. In other words, I would like to shoot a bullet from 180-210, it all depends on what the gun wants to shoot. I would like to look at some of the VLDs in that weight range. In talking with the guys at Bartlein, he made a few tweaks and recommendations. It was his idea to step up to the 10.5.
