Best Bullet

I know that some of you guys are tired of this question,but I would like to get ya'lls input on the best all around preforming bullet in the .300 rum. I'm looking for something in between the SMK and the TSX, a really good grouping bullet that is going to retain at least 75% of it's weight. Thanks Guys

Re: Best Bullet

The best bullet is a subjective term, but for the perameters based on your stated requirments, the 180 and 200 ACCUBOND bullets are hard to beat. The 180 TSX is another good choice with the right twist (a sweet spot for the 180 TSX is 11 to 11.5x)

Look no further than either the 180 gr or 200 gr Nosler Accubond.
