300 RUM and 200 gr Accubonds

What is the top 2 powders, loads, primer etc for this combo.

Seems like it might be Retumbo and H1000 and mag primers?

In my experience, RL-25 and Retumbo in that order. I use Federal 215 primers. mtmuley

I am breaking in a new barrel right now on my 300 rum. And I am loading 91 grs of rutumbo in nosler brass with a fed GM 215 and 200 grn AB. I am getting 2930ish fps and consistantly making one hole groups. I plan on bumping up the loads as I have just finished with the first 50 rounds.

hope this helps

yes 91gr retumbo, and rem 9.5 m primers work verry well for me in my 300 rum.
also 96.5gr retumbo, but i;m at the maximum (very hot) - so i bac down at 91.

Herm, ask Boyd, he's put many thousands of rounds out of a 300 RUM.
