Re: 210 Berger in the 300 RUM?

loaded 25 rounds 210 VLD today with 94 gn retumbo for the 300 RUM

Can almost Put them through the same hole at 100 yds
Ready to move out to 300 yds next

Re: 210 Berger in the 300 RUM?

Hey guys, sorry to bring something back from the dead.
I am just getting on the 300 RUM 210 vld bandwagon.
Got a load that shoots sub 1/2MOA, about 3000 FPS with 99.5GR US-869

Is it worth perusing additiona velocity? where do I stop with a 210? Id like to make sure im getting maximum performance out of the RUM for its case capacity. 3150-3200 FPS seems to be at the top end for the 210 VLD depending on all the variables that come into play.

What do you guys say?

Don't know about the 210's. In my gun with a 27" match tube max load below 78deg. with 208 A-Max is 91.5 Retumbo at 3100 and with 230 Hybreds 89.5 Retumbo at 3000. I was out last weekend at 82deg. and got tight bolt....Time to back it off %$#$^%^%%%$##$*&^&.Pissed me off
