300 SAUM

I can't get the search engine to work.

Anyone have any data on the 300 Rem SAUM round in a normal 24 inch tube?

IE is it 300 Win mag or better capable?

THanks, Jeff

I just got a Remmy Model 7 in 300SAUM and will be starting load development today... [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

If it's long it can't be wrong... LDHunter (Long Distance Hunter) from the Piney Woods of NW Florida. I hunt clearcuts for scrawny whitetails... ;)

Re: 300 SAUM

My 300 SAUM shoots at about 300 Win Mag velocities, but not with accuracy. The load I settled for this year pushed a 168 TSX at 2975 fps - higher than typical 30-06 or 308 velocities, but not what a Win Mag can do. - Of course I am probably using 20 grains less powder and the load shoots .5" @ 100.

I really like the "308 Fatso". The model 7 and 700 both have advantages. I have a 700 but I would sure like to try the model 7 to see what I can get out of one.

This is the bull I killed this year with my 300 SAUM. If I would have had a bigger gun I may have tried for a bigger bull [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
He could not tell that the bullet going through his heart was 100 fps slower than it could have been.

Good Bull Quiethunter.

Quiethunter left out a couple of details for you on that load. He and I shoot the same load for the .300 SAUM, it goes like this:

168 barnes TSX
56.5 gr. Varget
COL 2.80
Winchester WLRM Primer

Shoots good and obviously does the job.
