That sounds just like the 300 RUM I shoot. Get a reloading press and reload all your ammunition, or you cant afford to shoot it. I reload mine and shoot to 1000 yds alot. I keep 300 rounds loaded ready to go just to satisfy my trigger finger. I have the sendero and had a muzzle brake, trigger job, and also use a slip on limbsaver pad and can shoot it all day with no discomfort. I take it every where and impress everybody with it. You will enjoy it so much, or I do anyway. I can shoot round after round and cover all them with a quarter at 100 yds all day long, its a great rifle. I load 180 gr accubonds with h1000 powder and they are going 3180 fps and that is a light load, I use a ballistic reticle and that is what matches my scope. I am on some cases being loaded over 5 times and they and holding up great

long range rig

my brother and several friend have 300 rum they all shoot re-25 and 180 accubond. we all have a vais brake. once you find a good load i think a kenton knob works better than counting clicks for hunting. for target counting click is fine. with burris rings and the offsets you could probably get away with only 10 moa. the 300 rum is flat. i would get a leupold scope.

It looks like you are off to a great start. You will find as you shoot more that you will want a lighter trigger pull. 3lbs used to be the norm for a light trigger pull, now most folks I know, myself included, like a much lighter one for long range work.

You can find good deal on a scope online. In fact just saw a Zeiss 6-20x50 with target knobs Demo models at: Zeiss - Camera Land NY for $625-$679 depending on the reticle.
That is an awesome scope at a great price. You will need a 20moa base for it.
They normally sell for $900+


As far as bullets go the 210 Berger VLD's are awesome. They will provide you with great ballistics with the 300RUM. A buddy of mine dropped an elk with one at 715yds. They work!

Jim, what brake did you go with? I literally just got back from Bolsa dropping my 300 RUM send. sfII off and they recommended to me that I use a Shrewd Varmint muzzle brake over the Holland QD. I told them I would let them know tomorrow which I one I want as well as what I want to do for trigger work. Speaking of which, did you get any trigger work done?

I am in Corona, where is it you're shooting? Lyttle creek?
