Re: Bullet / Powder Suggestions for 300 SAUM

Thanks for the response S1. Any more information on powders? I am already going to try RL-19 based on Brent's advice.

    QH... I am a real fan of H4831sc and would compare that to RL-19. If you are not in a compressed load situation with H4831sc, I would look at H-1000 to compare to the others. I think that H-1000 would be outstanding for bullets in the 190 to 210 grain weight range. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Re: Bullet / Powder Suggestions for 300 SAUM

    I wanted to try RL-19, but the local store only had it in the huge container. I like to sample it first before I go big.

    I loaded up some with the 4831SC. Here are the details and results:
    Rem Model 700, 24" 1-10"
    80 Degrees
    Elevation 5700'

    65 Gr H4831SC
    178 Gr A-Max
    Rem 9 1/2M Primer
    COL 2.820
    Velocity 2734-2745
    .7 Group @ 100 Yards

    66 Gr H4831SC
    178Gr A-Max
    Rem 9 1/2M Primer
    COL 2.820
    Velocity 2784-2796
    .5 Group @ 100 Yards

    67 Gr H4832SC (Compressed?)
    178Gr A-Max
    Rem 9 1/2M Primer
    COL 2.820
    Velocity 2808 - 2844
    .6 Group @ 100 Yards

    While the accuracy was great, I am looking for more velocity if possible. I believe I am pushing case capacity. Any suggestions for the next kind of powder to try?

    QH,

    Is it you that is sending me the 300 SAUM case? If so you didn't give your handle as Quiethunter, so I'm wasn't sure.

    I have something I'd like to email you but your email address isn't available here, didn't want to send it to the wrong guy... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    QH... Sounds like with the 178, that H4350 might be your best bet.
