Re: .300 RUM brass

<ul type="square">[*] meichele is right on. Borrow or beg a chrono[*] 7RUMloader - I can't believe you didn't suggest WC 872 . I ordered 24 lbs today from Pat's Reloading - Only $36 for 8lbs. Lots of folks get great results in their RUMS and RUM like mags with this powder.[*] Eaglet is right on with his D&amp;L Sports, Inc recommendation - at least that's the word. I just got a box of 250 from Dave this week. Visual inspection is very disappointing - they look so much better than my 3,000 once fired Rem brass [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] The only bad thing is they come with a primer.[*]Even under the best of condition, Rem RUM brass is only good for 4 reloads.[*]I've got two new 300 RUMS I hope to test this weekend. Reports pending.[/list]

    let me know how the 872 does. Today I burned up 50 rounds out of the RUM and hit 35 p-dogs at ranges from 85 to 531. I LOVE this new stick.

    Sasquatch jwp475 has some 300 Rum WC872 data he might share with you. All mine is for the 7 Rum. I like it so far!
