Re: 230 Gr Berger Load Data For 300RUM wanted.

Well I just got back from shooting my 300rum with 230 berger and it shot good .75 group at a hundred yards 91 grains 2990 avr and 92 grains 3035 average rotumbo I had a little primer flattening with the 92 grains but not much at all I'm gonna load it at 91.5 to get me right at 3000 fps I seated them to fit the mag 3.60 they said they r designed to shoot out of the lands I'm happy

I have also found that some load data from Berger is on the low side compared to other manuals I use, but different bullets behave differently and 85 Gr is a LONG way behind 92 Gr. I think it pays to be very cautious what data you take from internet sources.

Wow Blacktail. Those figures are outstanding. 3000fps with that bullet with accuracy would more than do me!

Ya I'm very happy I like velocity with a big bullet I was actually Realy surprised at the velocty with no pressure my bolt lifted like there wasn't a round in there I think I have a very fast barrel I loaded up some of my 180 bts the other day with 100 grn of rotumbo and shot 3448 and that's .5 grain below Wat hogdon calls max and 148 fps faster than it says to. Now I hate to ask for help buy I need some data from 100 to 1000 yards of moa for my bdc dial with that bullet if any one could send me a email I would love it my computer is bunk and my phone won't let me enter anything

Yes it is a 300 ultra mag. Like i said always work up your loads one grain at a time. I ended up yousing 92 gr of H-1000 i could of yoused more powder but my best ES where at 92gr. Retumbo didn,t get good ES in my gun. I shot retumbo in my 338 AX 1/2 moa past 1400 yds. Rember the vel in the reloading book is so they don;t get suide if something goes rong. Just go slow let your rifle tail you when you reached the max then back off two grs. I will usley back off three or for grs. then load three shot at 1/2 gr incress to i find the best ES . Like 90gr then 90 1/2 then 91 then 92 that is where i found my 2964 2965 2968. Now i could of went further but that was my best load. My 300 ultra mite be a faster barrel i don,t know. So start at 86 and work up. My rem has a 25 1/2'' rockcreek barrel. I just order a Basix trigger set at one pound from compene. That sould help get my groups under 1/2 moa. See i do not care if i get to three THOUSAND that would not be hard but low ES IS WAY MORE INPORTENT TO ME. I hope this helped. Joe
