300 RUM recipes

Anyone have any good 300 RUM recipes? I am using Retumbo and 190 smks and 220 smks. I would like to get 3000 fps out of a 26 inch barrel. Thanks guys.

85gr ADI 2217 (H-1000) 200gr smk 2700 but a heap more room for powder so can go faster i got some 240smk and had better accuracy..

88gr ADI 2217 (H-1000) 240gr smk 2800 the best load in my gun es was like 3fps over 3 shots as i recall , 2 the same 1 3fps faster..

Not quite what youre after but it might help... oh and its a 26" barrel too..

Cheers Mike

94.0gr Retumbo over 200gr Accubonds at just under 3200fps (28 inch barrel).
.75 minute or better at distance (when I do my part).

Re: 300 RUM recipes

Your barrel will have alot to do with mv. A good quality match bbl will be easier to get good mv. And stay clean. Not fouling. Proper break in keeps copper fouling to a minimum. Cleans easy. This all creates consistant mv.

I'm running 96 gr. Retumbo 190 vlds fed 215 m primers 27" lilja geting 3250 fps. Seated 3.74" It's a solid 1000 yard load. Not too hot. Easy on the throat.

Re: 300 RUM recipes

Am curious Dusty, your measurment is that from the base of shell to tip of bullet or base of shell to Ogive of bullet??? I am guessing as long as it is it must be to the tip of bullet. I have experimented with Retumbo, H1000, RE22, Ramshot Magnum. I would also like to try RE25. I have settled on Berger 210gr bullets. I looked at 240gr SMK's but they require a 1/9 twist and my barrel is only 1/10 twist.
