The lower case volume of the RWS makes the load you described close to 100% full depending on seating depth. I find max with RWS and a 210 Berger and H-1000 to be closer to 73 or 74 gr. I am not sure of your barrel length or the altitude you are shooting, but if you are under 4000 ft als. and in less than a 28" barrel please be very careful.

I agree with Bro's on this I found that around 76-78 grain was compressing loads. I only had 20 pieces so I never actually developed a load with it. RWS isn't hard to find per say you just have to buy it in bulk or find someone willing to do a group buy. I have been using Win brass with good results but it seems as of late Rem brass seems to be more consistent.



truth be told you almost cant miss with some sort of heavy VLD and h1000. I use CCI BR2 with 208 gr Amax but I think maybe Fed 215 Match would be better especially with the really heavy guys. I am actually planning on using the AMAX in my .308 over some vagrat and switch to the 230 OTM's for the win mag for hunting bear.

Re: 300 win mag with 210 Vld

I also am shooting the 215s behind H1000 and Fed 215 primers. Im finding pressure at 76 gr. Accuracy was great at 100 with 75.5 and 76gr( 5/8" outside to outside) but at 200yds it opened up to 2 1/2" +. My ES wasn't that good either....35fps. With CCI 250 it was 38fps. I shoot weight sorted R-R brass and the hybrids are .010 off the lands.
What do you guys suggest?
I also have some Retumbo......maybe my gun doesn't like H1000. Ha, that would be a first.
I might try backing my seating depth .020 and .030 and see what happens. It's a 25" broughton barrel with a trued and squared Rem action.
Thanks

Brent

Re: 300 win mag with 210 Vld

Greyfox, I told you I would keep you posted on my results with the milspec. I just got aroound to working on loads this week I had several issues with the rifle I had to send it back to Rem. to have the chamber finished, they skipped that step, then during barrel breakin the extractor broke after 23 shots actually that was the second time it broke it was broken when I shipped it back to have the chamber done, I have since installed a sako extractor. I orderd a magneto speed crony so I waited for it to get here before starting true load development. Ended up loading 76grs. H1000 shooting 215 bergers, the only brass I could come up with was Rem. so far it seems to be doing ok, neck sizing it, cci250 primers, tried fed215m but the groups were terrible ( about 2" at 100) .300 win mag with 210 Vld-300.jpg

300 win mag with 210 Vld-800yds.jpg this is the results, the one shot that's right of center on paper was a brain fart on my part ( actually I had another I shot 3 times unpluged the crony then decided to shoot a couple more duh should have left it plugged in). After shooting at 100 and getting the vel. I went straight to my 800 yd. steel not to bad for a rookie I guess. Seating depth is .010 off lands, I may play with it a little but I could only find one box of 215's so I'm a little nervous about shooting too many. It's not the fastest horse in the race but it's shooting pretty good. I love the magneto speed, also I installed a jewel set at 1.25 lbs.

Re: 300 win mag with 210 Vld

Rick, Glad to hear you got your Milspec sorted out, and looking at your results, shooting great! I had initially settled on 75.5gr of H1000 which giving me 2765FPS. I decided to try Retumbo and was able to increase my velocity to 2880FPS with .25-.5 MOA and single digit ES. I'm using 79gr, Norma brass, and Fed215's. I'm not seeing any pressure signs. I'm in a similiar boat with my powder supply running low. I had to break into my Retumbo lot reserved for my 6.5x284. I also picked up a Magnetospeed chronograph. I will probably never use my Ohler again.

Re: 300 win mag with 210 Vld

G F Thanks for the info if I can find some Retumbo I will try it,I would like to get a little more vel. if I don't have to sacrifice accuracy. How is it on temp sensitivity? I will be heading West in a few weeks so I am trying to get this sorted out, as for now it will be my back up to my 7 RM but it will be my go to elk gun. If you stumble across any 215's let me know. I have some 210's I can get right now, I may just go ahead and get them,I think they should do fine as well. Right now I guess beggers can't be choosers.

Rick, I have been using Retumbo for several seasons and found the temperature stability to be excellent. I start my hunting early Oct. in Wyoming where I've seen temps in the 80's and end in Alberta when we can get well below freezing. No issues. I had difficulty getting 215's as well and ended up settling on 210's which I have a good supply. I would have preferred the higher BC of the 215's but lucking out with a good load at higher velocity with Retumbo helped close the performance gap. I'll keep my eye out for 215's. Art

Re: 300 win mag with 210 Vld

H1000 seems to be a very popular choice for powder. I just purchased some IMR 4831 to load with 210 VLDís and wonder if you all had tried shooting this powder at all. Thought I would try this powder out since itís what I will be shooting in my .280 A.I. Still fairly new to reloading and reading as much as I can on the topic to best spend my money. Plus the wait for the products take some time to get here if I can find a place to back order it from. Thanks for your time and info.
