Re: ?????Barrel Length for .300 Tomahawk
I think the limit of length depends largely on what type of rifle it's going to be (heavy pure bench rifle, a carry rifle, etc?). What do you have in mind?
While I haven't gotten to play with my RUM yet, here are some figures to ponder:
Saeed at the other board got a max of 2986 out of the 240 MK with a 26" RUM with numerous accurate loads over 2800.
The Barnes manual lists 2775 with their 250 RN from a 24" tube.
These are from the RUM case, not the improved version, mind you. I would think that even with a 26" barrel, you shouldn't have a problem finding an accurate load over 3000 with the Tomahawk.
Of course I haven't tried it yet, so the above is just speculation on my part.... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
But I sure hope I'm right...I'm expecting at least 2900 from my 26" RUM with that bullet and hoping for better. I guess this summer I'll find out for sure....
