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

My son is running the 230 @ 2775 fps from his 300 win. For a comparison he use to run his 210's at 2916 fps from the same rifle. Comparing these two loads they are almost the same velocity at 1000 yards, but the 230 carries about 130 lbs more energy and it has shown us it's true ability to buck the wind very well.

Just thought I woul toss this out there for reference.

Jeff

Jeff, here's the numbers I've been looking at: Numbers are at sea level, 100 yard zero, 10mph wind and at a distance of 1000 yards.

210VLD@3120fps: 229"drop, 1788fps, 1491ft/lbs. and 5.2MOA wind drift.

215 Hybrid Target@3100fps: 222"drop, 1880fps, 1687ft/lbs. and 4.7MOA wind drift.

230 Hybrid Target@2925fps: 242"drop, 1811fps, 1675ft/lbs. and 4.7MOA wind drift.

As you can see, if I get down there around 2900fps with the 230 in order to get it to shoot accurately I will be better off going with the 215 provided it shoots and runs right around 3100fps (I don't see why it wouldn't). Wind drift for the 215 and the 230's at these velocities are the same, only .5MOA better than the 210VLD. Now whether the 215 will run in the neighborhood of 3100 and be very accurate we shall have to see.

I ended up going with the 215 and was able to run 3160 fps. Accuracy was about half minute until I reached an abrupt end to the barrels life at about 1300 rounds. It's going in for major surgery in the next couple weeks. It will stay a rum but will wear a 31" broughton and use the 230's this time around.
