300 rum

Does anyone have a smokin load for a 300RUM 150 grain bullet for deer. I reloaded with 180's but have never tried anything lighter. Most shots are 150 to 400yards dont get to many chances past 400 to many dam trees

Re: 300 rum

Dont overlook the 155 AMAX with Retumbo or RL-25. This is an ultra flat (over 3600FPS) deer slayer.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Would also recommend the Barnes TSX bullets, they hold together well at high velocity.

Re: 300 rum

Or the opposites gonna happen, any shot under 200 yards and your gonna get serious lack of penetration and a big entrance hole. With a shoulder shot, they might even run off. 150g bt is not the best choice for deer hunting out of a 300 RUM, not even a 165g bt is a good choice. To light of bullets, and they are going to fast to do any real penetration. bt bullets are great if you work within there velocity limits. I would recomend a 180g btip, but I could be wrong. Let us know how it works out on that deer.
