Re: ULD RBBT bullets

I'll be trying some 30 Cal 265's in my 300 RUM in a couple months when I get the new barrel on my rifle. That's going to be fun.

What tube are you installing? Are those 265's some you had before the sale?

A 1:8 twist Benchmark. I discovered they were right in my backyard so I figured I'd give one a try.

I got them after, but they are old stock made by Richard. Hopefully it won't be too long before Paul can resume their production.

Unfortunately no. With a 1:10 the 240 SMK is about as big as you can go.

Re: ULD RBBT bullets

The 130 grain and 142 grain bullets work well in a 257 Wby with a 1-8 twist barrel and the 130 grain will do a really good job on an elk.

Yeah, I convinced a buddy of mine to try Ron and he just had a .243 accurized there and had one of Ron's Benchmark tubes installed. Still load testing, but looks good so far. I'm about an hour north of him.

What length are you going with? Brake or no?
