.300 RUM favorite pet loads

Could some of you .300Rum fans share your favorite loads please? I'm going to be using my Remington sendero mostly for whitetail. Interested in any of your most accurate loads.

Re: .300 RUM favorite pet loads


I always used 100.0 gr H-1000 under a 180 gr Ballistic Silvertip in my 300 RUM. This by the way is a very top end load and I would recommend starting 10% under this and working up.

Since then Retumbo was released as well as the accubond bullet so now I like 100.0 gr Retumbo under the 180 gr Accubond. The 200 gr Accubond also works very well but certainly not needed for deer. I use Rem cases and Fed 215 primers in all my loads as well. Always start low and work up though!!

I like at least 180 gr bullets in the 300 RUM. Just runs better with a bit of bullet weight compared to the lighter 150 and 165 gr pills.

Good Shooting!!

85 gr Retumbo under a 240 SMK. Shoots .25" out of my rifle @ 100 yds. Might want to use the 220 SMK w/a little more powder instead of the 240. I don't think you'll notice much difference in the performance of the two. I've had some difficulty getting ahold of the 240s.
