Sendero, 300 RUM load w/ 210 Berger?

Hello. I'm new here, so bear with me.

I have a Sendero in 300 RUM. I've been shooting 200 grain accubonds with disappointing groups (1") no matter what I do in terms of powder charge or COAL. I'm thinking of giving the Berger 210 a try. Does anyone have the perfect load worked up for the Berger 210 in their Sendero 300 RUM that they'd be willing to share? Would prefer to stay with the standard 3.60" COAL if possible so the factory magazine well will work.

You should consider the 215 hybrid. I load them for a buddy of mines 300 ultra Sendaro. With H-1000 it shoots under 1/2 inch. They didn't seem to be sensitive to seating depth and it didnt take a lot of effort to find an accurate load. One problem may be the Coal. His is too long to load in the mag .

What powder charge did you use with the 215's? I just bought 100 of them and want to try them in my 300 rum

8 moa at 1000?? or 8" at 1000.... 1 moa would be around 10" at 1000.
sorry but I thought I'd ask.

We've been using 180,190, and 225 hornady with either rl25, rl33, or rl50 here. 180's at 3300 fps, 190's at 3200 fps, and 225's at 3K fps at 1/2 moa (1") at 200. The 300 rum simply doesn't care what you feed it and both my bdl lh and my brother's sendero shoot about the same.
