Re: 300 RUM Hunting Loads

Thanks for the info trebark. I have actually seen those threads and love what Broz is doing at those distances. However, I am probably going to be doing most of my shooting under 500 yards with an occasional shot past that point. Because of that, I am a little nervous about going with that berger since it will cause a lot of meat loss I'm guessing.

500 yards? Go with a Barnes.

Re: 300 RUM Hunting Loads

I don't want to limit my shooting to 500, I'm just guessing that a lot of my shots will be under that. So why would you suggest a Barnes over the Accubond at that range? Just curious...as I said, trying to find the best starting point, so all opinions are welcome!

Re: 300 RUM Hunting Loads

REM brass, fed 215M, 200 gr AB, 92 gr RL25, OAL fit to mag length-approx 3.670 in Rem 700 usually. 3150-3200 FPS and accurate in many guns... if not try Retumbo instead. Work up to this as its a fairly max load. The 200 AB is flat shooting and flattens elk if you do your job behind the trigger.
