210 gr wildcat 300 rum advice

I got some 210 wildcats from BJ Bailey he adviced my to start at 90gr retumbo and work up to 92.5. Well I'm out of retumbo but have H1000 can I also start at 90 and work up to 92.5. I also loaded some 200AB's from 91 to 93gr h1000 to see how they shoot

Re: 210 gr wildcat 300 rum advice

I would also recommend dropping that starting load a couple grains from that of the Retumbo starting load. H-1000 is measureably faster burning then Retumbo so this will just give you a bit more cushion just to be on the safe side.

Top end velocity will be similiar with both, be careful on top end loads however, H-1000 can pressure out in this case volume with this bullet weight. What I mean is you can get into dangerous pressure levels with this powder and cartridge combo. Work up slow and over a chrono if possible.

Re: 210 gr wildcat 300 rum advice

I see that alot of you are using Retumbo for the 300 RUM, i have just started testing loads in my new 700 LSS.I have tried 93.0 grains Retumbo with the Barnes TSX 180 grain, seated at .040 off the lands.Seems to be a real mild load, pressure wise. Is this low on the Retumbo charge? Barnes web site shows 93.0 as max, or is it just C.Y.A. for liability reasons??? Glad to find so many people who shoot this caliber.... Thanks in advance for any help.....rsbhunter
