AJ Peacock, I use quickload and at 95 grains it shows unbelievable pressure. I know quickload is wrong, but for some reason yours is correct. Did you tweek anything, because I spent good $$$ for the progrma and it seems to be a waste.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Sorry for the hijack.

Double check the OAL length, as a very deep seating will really spike the pressures. Mine shows a cartridge length of 3.598. Also the Water capacity for the brass can cause a big change, mine shows 113gr

If those aren't the problem, take a screen shot and email it to don_peacock at hotmail.com and I'll compare the rest of the values.

Re: Another .300 RUM starting point load question.

AJ, what range does it say the bullet will go back subsonic. I don't have a program as yet that gives me that info. Been spending all the extra cash on things like brass and dies and bullets and cases etc. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
I don't want a max load but do want one that will give me enough volocity at 1500 yds to pop a Praire dog. I think the 92 grain area will probably be where I end up or in that vacinity if it likes the load.

FWIW, I ordered my dies from RCBS 3 days ago and they told me they had several in stock.
