I just picked up a 300 RUM and I am curious what others are using for hunting loads. I have done some searching on here, but haven't found a ton of information.
I want to put together one load that I can use for all big game hunting, including antelope, deer, and elk out to 500+ yards. I have been leaning towards the 200 gr Accubond because it seems kind of in the middle between the Berger VLD and the Barnes TSX and looks to be a pretty flat shooter. I have heard great things about the Berger, but honestly I am a little hesitant because of the shrapneling of the bullet. I don't want to be wasting a bunch of meat so the animal takes 5 less steps before dying. I could be wrong it this assessment, but it is just what I have read
. I have also heard quite a few stories about the Barnes "penciling" through animals and it seems that they also aren't a very flat shooting round.
Any opinions and/or load data would be appreciated!
