Re: 300 rum/200gr.smk

My load for the 200g SMK was 94g H-1000. Was very accurate all the way to 800 yards, and was doing 3200fps. This was out of my old Rem 700 LSS 300 RUM. Start a lil lower and work up to that and you should find something the rifle likes.

The 200 gr SMK has been a "go to" bullet for many in the LR comp game. It just shoots in anything and is consistent as heck.
