Re: 300 saum

I have a 700 in a 300 SAUM, It really likes 150 Hornady Interbond w/ Varget Powder, next best I tried is the 165 Sierra BTSP and 4350 or Reloader 17 which I took a deer with this last fall. Bowled him big time. I had bought it to build a light 7 SAUM but the 300 shoots so well, don't have the heart to tear it apart. Next bullet I'm going to try is the 190 VLD Berger. I'm starting to like this cartridge more.

Re: 300 saum

I load for a pair of 300 SAUMs and have had very good results with R-17 at Alliants listed max. Varget has worked well with 150's and IMR 4007 has worked well with 180's for less than max loads. I am currently working with superformance but have not reached any conclusions.

Note. I have had good results with almost all powders listed for it and all bullet weights. It just seems to be an easy to load for round.

Both rifles loaded for are Rem. Model 7.
