Re: 300 Rum

Alucard,

Actually I believe that was one of the test load I came up with. I will let you know how she runs.

    I was just thinking I could push a 150 so fast that it would shoot real flat. My plan was for it to be a deer load. Last night I loaded 96, 94, 92 grains of Rx22 in the 150. We shall see this weekend if it shoots.

    I had the same plan, but you need to compare ballistics. The heavier bullets have higher BC and shoot flatter long range. If you're only shooting out to 350 yards you still want the bullet that's most accurate (and will work on the game).

    I have a 300 RUM Sendero I shoot 180gr Accubond with and I'm having my other Savage 300 RUM accurized/trigger job/ holland QD + 1:12 twist Lilja barrel by Kirby. That will be shooting Senar 155gr bullets for deer, as where I got the longest shot is 700 yards.

    Look at my ballistic traces

    What is medium weight? 180?

    Yeah I am not quite to the "long range" most everybody else on here is at. For right now this is sub 400 yards gun.

    srhaggerty,

    The load that I gave you was starting to produce some high pressures in my rifle. You might want to back the load off to 92.4 gr of Retumbo. That still gave me 5/8" 4 shot 100 yard groups. Plus, it will save on the powder and the rifle wear. That and the damn thing kicks too hard [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Alucard,

    I looked last night and I did 101, 99, 97. I am pretty new to reloading; what are all the pressure sign. I know about sticky bolts and the primer. What else is there? I will load some 92.4 for the 168's. I am out right now though. What about in Rx22?

    Re: 300 Rum

    I have never tried that powder, so I can't help you out with that.

    Some of the signs of pressure would be bulged cases, flat primers, cratered primers, poped primers - all of which you know - excessive case head expansion, which I am learning about myself too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] I am am not much of an expert on the pressure signs, and I am sure that some of the others on this forum could help you out better then I can in that area.
