Hi it's my first post here so please be gentle......
My first .300RUM is ready for me to collect from my gunsmith next Tuesday
. The problem is that as some of you may know, here in the UK we have very tight gun laws and as a result there are probably less than 20 .300 RUM's in the country!
This lack of local knowledge, combined with load manuals only listing to 200ish grains has caused me a problem with finding a safe starting load. Also powder is relatively hard to get within 100miles of me and is very expensive here in the UK.
So at over $70 per lbs I've manged to get H-1000, Retumbo & 4831/4831SC. Can you please recommend any safe starting loads with these powders and the 240grMK's and 210gr Bergers.
Any help greatly appreciated, Tiff.
