    Re: 300 rum loads

    I acquired some 175 grain Berger VLD hunting bullets (freebees). I thought I would play with them in my 300 RUM. Does anyone have a good load for this particular bullet that I can use as a starting point? I want to use Retumbo powder. I would start at a lower powder charge and work my way up.
    Thanks

    Just finished developing a 200gr Accubond load and ended up with 88.5 grains of Reloader 25 and Winchester LRM primers. 3110 fps and exceptional accuracy. Sub MOA at 500 yards, two four shot groups.

    I always had the best luck with RL-25. I think that my best load was rl-25 94.5 gr with a 180 accubond.
