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

Re: 300 rum loads

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.
Sako action, Christensen/Shillen barrel, muzzel brake

Re: 300 rum loads

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.
