Re: .300 RUM reloading ?????\'s


I share your enthusiasm about the 178 AMAX. Out of my 300 RUM at 3100 FPS from a 300 yard zero my load only drop under 37.5" at 600 yards. Its an amazing performer! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: .300 RUM reloading ?????\'s

I as I do not have any load data for the 175 SMK's (or 190's), do you guy's have any suggestions? Been examining that round myself....
I shoot about 3/4 MOA with Nosler's 180 right now with RL22.

Re: .300 RUM reloading ?????\'s

I just noticed this posting as I just returned from Elk hunting. I have a 300 ultra that I shoot 200grn Accubonds in. It has a 28" pac nor barrell and is giving me 1/4 groups at 100 yrds. I am using 85 grains of IMR 7828 powder and federal 210 primers. I want you to know this is a hot load for my rifle and I get extractor marks on the brass but it is dead accurate. I have not shot it at the 1000yrd range so can not speak about that distance. If your considering this load please start out lighter. Serra's manual says that 86.2 is a max load. I have other loads that I have tried and when I get a moment Ill post them for you if your interested.

A buddy of mine, BJ Bailey, shoots a 300 Rum with a 210gr wildcat at 3200fps. This is out of a 30" Lilja barrel that is a tight bore. Should play hell on whitetails.

Re: .300 RUM reloading ?????\'s

A partial verdict is in...........

THE 220 gr SMK's win hands down in the accuracy department. At 1000yds, the 240's avg'd around 18" groups (10 shots, measured best 8).......the 220's avg'd around 10" groups (10 shots, measured best 8)........

Now, I will make up about 10 different powder loads and find out which one is the most accurate, I hope it is a hotter load.

I'll Let you all know what wins.

PS.....I'll shooting a 26" bbl, Rem 700 PSS......stock, out of the box.
