Re: 240g SMK in a 300 RUM?
It would seem to me that with our 26" factory tubes, that 2800-2850 is all we could expect with decent accuracy probly at the 2800fps mark. Even at that speed at 500 yards, I obviously would not want to be a deer in my sights. I think the 220g smk, is actually little better route, but thats just my opinon. BC is .629 and you can get it going 3000fps. I have shot them out to 1150 yards and was happy with them. I have not tried the 240g smk simply because you have to buy them at 500 at a time. I dont exactly have $200 to try on a box of bullets.
