Re: 230 Bergers and 300 RUM

Took it all the way to 95 gr and no severe signs of pressure. The groups never got any better so I will work with 92.5 and mess with the OAL to hopefully get it at .5. From 92 up the groups were all 3 inches higher than the other groups so at least it should continue to print in the same area. Next range day I will shoot 300 yds and more if I have time. Its getting hot in southern AZ have to get out early. Thanks again to all the experienced long range shooters.

Re: 230 Bergers and 300 RUM

I know the last post on this thread was just about a year ago, but I figured I would drop a post on here to see where everyone was at with their loads. It seems like there were a lot of people who were in the middle of load development and I would love to hear how it is going (although we know how Jeff's load development went )

I have been debating on loading up some 215's or 230's for my 300 RUM and any feedback would be great. One issue I think I'll have is that with my current magazine on my Rem 700, I can only get about 3.6 COL to fit in the magazine. Is that something a Wyatt's box would help/fix?

Looking forward to hearing how everyone has progressed from last year!

Re: 230 Bergers and 300 RUM

A page or so back I had reported on a load using the 230 hybrid and H1000 with my 300 RUM.

After a long wait RL-33 showed up! I knew that it would be perfect in a 300 RUM with the 230, just had to see how 33 would perform.

Using same OAL of 3.775" Worked up to 102 gr of powder. Accuracy was best with 100 gr. Velocity is now 2975 fps. This is with that 24" rem takeoff!

Took the rig to the Tucson Rifle Club for some shooting at the 500M rams. Comeups were exact based on the BC that Berger suggests. Took it elk hunting but ended up using my 7 1/4 lb 338 RCM in the woods.

There is your update.

Awesome, sounds like a great load. Is that just a single load at a time then at that COL? I am assuming that you can't fit that in a magazine right?

OAL fits and feeds from a Wyatt's mag box in a push feed model 70 just fine. Two fit into the magazine with one in the chamber.

I ran the 230 bergers out of a 28 Hart barrel at 3150 fps with RL25 pressure was fine. Very accurate went easily under 1/2 moa
