    It's a 10 twist. I'm going out Wednesday morning to try the 85 gr load. I'll let you know what she does. If I kill my deer early in the season, I'm going to try the big 240 grainer out on a doe. Going to need a little time to verify the drops though.

    Re: HELP W/ 300 RUM LOADS

    I will give you the executive summary---I have a SG&Y 300 RUM with a 25 inch Shilen and a SG&Y Brake and a Shilen Trigger. II know about the barrel length thing but this is a rifle that will be carried some in the field even with the 5.5 contour barrel. Now I have tried the 190 and 200 SMK and the 190 or 185 Berger with win mag primers with all bullets seated out to magazine length. I tried over 60 different powder bullet combinations at 300 yards using the same rest with a different top that I use in competition (Bald Eagle) and got 5 shot group sizes from 2 inches to 4 inches. Hunting season started in Texas and I did not have time to start over with the Sierra 200 gr btsp hunting bullet so I loaded 20 with 93.0 of H1000 and took them with me to the ranch. At 100 yards because we had some equipment parked in line with the 300 and 600 range it put after 2 shots to set the zero 3.1 inches high for a 300 yd zero I fired a 5 shot group---all 5 went into .41—the best I have ever shot with a hunting rifle with hunting bullets!! It will be scary to tweak this and see what it can really do but it is good enough for me!!! I am done with this rifle.
