Re: Hard time with my 300rum

Do yourself a favor and get the Nolser 200gr Accubond. The BC is .588 and it will be all the bullet you need and they shoot great!!!

Re: Hard time with my 300rum

I use 86gr of R-22 behind a 200gr Accubound and a Rem. mag. primer. Shoots .6in 5 shot groups at 100 yards out of my Sendero!!

Bullet seated at 3.625. Clocked them a tad bit over 3100fps. This combo should work in your rifle.

Re: Hard time with my 300rum

You may want to check these areas out before burning any more powder.

have you removed the pressure hump in the forend and properly bedded the action? Scope bases and rings tight? Scope with no parallax that will hold zero? Magnification/resolution high enough so that you can see a pen line at 100yds?

Are you sizing you brass for little to no runout? how about after seating? Are you working up your loads in 1/2 grain increments? Weighing your charges to 1/10 of a grain or better? Using a quality powder like H1000, Retumbo, Re 22 or similar? How about match primers?

These little things make a huge difference in how a rifle performs. Make sure that the rifle will shoot the type of accuracy you want. Some factory barrels aren't sub MOA no matter what is fed.

I use SST's in a wide variety of rifles and bores. Never had them not shoot IF the rifle was up to it.

However, rifles are not an exact science so try the ballistic tips. They are certainly an excellent bullet. Maybe that's all it will take.

I tried Tommy B's combination today in my Sendero and mine shot just like he says!

Re: Hard time with my 300rum

[img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] Another satisfied customer!! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] I'm glad it worked out for you. I'm working on two more loads Docnoker I will let you know after I test them. It might be about two weeks or so my rifle is in the shop getting a trigger job done and I just order a new Leupold VX-II 3-9X50 from Midway with the German #4 reticle that I like so much.

The first load is a 220gr MK w/IMR-7828 AND the second is a 180gr Accubond w/R-22 they should shoot good but i will have to wait and see. I like the heavier bullets in this gun/cal. I'm going to kick the crap out of a bear this year with that Accubond!! Talk to ya later.
