I've been reading the comments here as I have just got a Sendero 300 RUM. Interesting stuff.
Meichelle, I'm not trying to be a butt head (I dont have to try, it comes natural
), but.... 3200 fps with 200 gr AB's seems very normal for this cartridge and 2893 very slow. So from where I'm sitting... in my chair in front of the monitor... something doesn't seem to be adding up with your experience.
I dont doubt anything you say, it just seems a liottle odd.
Also, wouldn't backing of a little from max load save a lot of throat wear?
