Got My first "long range killer" 300 rum need help
i just picked up a remington 700 300 RUM this morning on a trade. i traded my taurus judge and my lcp 380 for this 300 rum. it has a jewled bolt muzzle break trigger job picatiny mount nikon prostaff BDC 3-9x50 and has only had one box of ammo i think i did pretty damn well in the trade.. anyways i need brass and i cant find any anywhere online or at local shops !i would really like to not buy loaded ammo just to get brass.. also if any of you have a sweet load data for a factory rem 700 26in barrel i would love somewhere to start if i can get bulets... also is this super high BC nessary to shoot 1k ? can i get away with a 180gr with a bc of .5?? ish ? im just getting into long range precision shooting iv shot a longgg way before but with a m2 50 cal ha.
If I did not already have the Amax bullets on my shelf, along with a load that I'm very satisfied with, I would be seriously considering the 215grain Berger Hybrid. Alternatively, you could go for the highest BC with the 230grain Berger.
