Re: Barnes 200gr LRX 300 RUM
Thanks for the info,
I have Neil Jones dies custom made for my chamber and have had fantastic results with 200 gr Accubond bullets and RL 25, I have been coating all my bullets with WS2 tungsten disulfide for over ten years now and only run 40 rounds of naked bullets to break in a new barrel and that's it
Like other shooters I was chasing BC's and jumped all over the Bergers but unlike the glowing reports of the other guys I could never get any acceptable accuracy with the 210 and 230 gr Bergers in my 300 Rum nor in my 338 Edge with the 300 gr OTM bullets, H-1000 gave the best accuracy with 300 gr Accubonds in the Edge, I have given up on the Bergers and will burn up what I have left for fireforming my wildcat 7.62 Pro when it's done . Have had much better luck with Accubonds which in my view are much better hunting bullets for Alaska
Shooting targets and rocks on the mountain sides is great fun and all good but I don't really care for using the Bergers for hunting anyway, they are more of a "lower 48" deer bullet, I'm looking forward to trying the LRX bullets and really excited about the Accubond Long Range bullets (have 4 boxes preordered)
How is it y'all still don't know the difference between CALIBER and CARTRIDGE ??
"In guns, particularly firearms, caliber or calibre is the approximate internal diameter of the barrel, or the diameter of the projectile it fires."
