Re: Berger bullet for 300 RUM

Seems like your one of the few people that talk about using CCI primers, seems like most people use federal primers. Right now it seems that federal primers are harder to find then a good job. But then 300 RUM brass, bullets and primers are all tough to find right now.

Re: Berger bullet for 300 RUM

I use the 200gr accubond, 95gr of Retumbo, with cci mag primer. I get 3240fps out of a slightly longer barrel (27"), plenty of pop for anything I will ever hunt, and I get very good groups at 500 plus. The wind drift is good for a traditional hunting bullet, although the 210berger or 208 Amax may drift a tad less.

I just tried a few 190gr bergers, accuracy was very good, they shot very similar drops to the 200gr accubonds.

Re: Berger bullet for 300 RUM

I figure I have 5,000 federal 215 primers and 900 CCI large rifle magnum primers.
My father inlaw who has reloaded for ever is not a fan of compressed loads. I have not been reloading long enough to know if there is truely a benifet to them???
So I have been looking at H1000, Ramshot Magnum, So between experimenting with different powder loads "brands" and bullet seating depths. I can't wait for berger to come out with the reloading book. Hope they list pressures and most accurate load. So as soon as I get my reloading room set up then I can start putting together some loads to try out and of course will post the results.

Re: Berger bullet for 300 RUM

Please forgive me in advance ...........but...........

Why would anyone stuff a pecker wood bullet in a 338 RUM? Ya may as well go back to the '06 and shoot something with at least a somewhat respectable bc.

Or maybe you're not considering Long Range game taking? Or you're skeerd of the recoil. Shooting a 338 RUM with a 200 gr bullet or less just doesn't seem manly.

Stick a 300 SMK in front of some Retumbo and go after it.

The above is a bit tongue-in-cheek, but I really don't understand and advantabae of a light bullet in a big bore cartridge. Any counsel would be appreciated.
