Ouch! That long memory of yours hurts!!

The only powder I could get the velocity out of the 240s with that I wanted was US869, but I did not care for it's temp sensitivity, at least with those components, so this combo of the 210 and Retumbo seemed like the next best thing. I guess I didn't fly under the radar long enough!

Re: 210 Berger in the 300 RUM?

After all these years a rifle dream materialized for me
A Remington 700 Alaskan Wilderness Rifle in 300 RUM. All I had around were some 210 Bergers so I loaded some under Retumbo. The following is a 3 shot group which measures .375" center to center. The load was 94 gr of retumbo at 3075 fps. I stopped there and went home. I am elated.

Re: 210 Berger in the 300 RUM?

Ditto on the 94 grains of Retumbo and 210 Berger .010 into the lands. Three-shot group at 500 yards measured 1.963 inches. I had to go to the Winchester Large Rifle Magnum primer to get my chrono numbers to settle down, and, boy, did they ever. The numbers were 3,173, 3,175 and 3,178 for a 5 ES and a 2 SD. I cannot wait to get the crosshairs on a deer somewhere between 600 to 880 yards. The barrel is a 28.5 inch Krieger with one of Danny Huffman's muzzle brakes screwed on a Sendero action and stock.
