Re: help working up a 300 rum load

You are on the right track.

If it was me personally, I'd load only 3 at each weight of 90,91,92,93,94 with the bullets seated to just touch the lands to start off with, and of course watching for pressure signs.

Whichever weight shoots the best, you can start to tweak the seating depth.

Good luck and let us know how it works out.

Try Retumbo..93 - 95gr under a 200gr Accubond...Fed 215MM...and seat em .025" off the rifleing if your chamber will allow it.

Re: help working up a 300 rum load

what distance are you going to test your loads at? if 200 yds then I would say load 5 of each. If testing at 100 yds I would load 10 of each to be able to shoot 5 @ 100 yd, and 5 @ 200 yd. In my opinion 5 shots is the way to go that way you can allow for pulled shots or flyers and still have an idea of which load is best.

Re: help working up a 300 SAUM load

All the reload data I can find is on 24 inch bolt. I'm reloading for a 20 inch DPMS semiauto 300 SAUM. What differences will I get with a shorter barrell and can I accurately load off the data I have.
