Info on 300RUM & 215 berger

Looking for any info on the Berger 215 Hybrid target out of a 300WM or 300RUM. Load Data, Elevation, Barrel length, Velosity, powders used. I'm also interested in data on the Berger 230 Hybrid if you've tried it.

Thanks Wayne

Re: Info on 300RUM & 215 berger

I am shooting them out of my 300 rum sendero. Using gm215m primers and 90.2 grains of retumbo I am getting around 2950 fps. Coal of 3.790
Did you buy the bullets recently? You know of anywhere that has them?

Re: Info on 300RUM & 215 berger

I am also shooting them out of a Sendero in 300 RUM. 26" barrel. COAL 3.843", FED 215 Match Primer, MV 2985 fps, 91 gr H1000. I am at 1300 ft elevation. Very accurate load but not that impressed with the speed I am getting. Guess I need a longer barrel. All I can say is if you have some or can find some, try them; you will like them.

Re: Info on 300RUM & 215 berger

Thanks guys, I looked today everywhere & couldn't find them. Hopefully by Spring this craziness will slow down & I can find some.
I'm shooting the 208 Amax with great results but if I can push these 3000fps with their BC it will far out shine the Amax.
I'm shooting 91.5 of H-1000 at 2925 at 1300' elevation which was'nt max, & .5 accuracy.

I am not at max either. I should of stated that. I just stopped there because it shoots so good. Our velocities are similar, I thought you would be a little faster with the AMAX. I was thinking at first the chronograph was showing my speeds as to slow. But with 2985 fps entered into SHOOTER my drops are dead on out to 900 yds.

Re: Info on 300RUM & 215 berger

I've been told you get a little more speed with less powder because of less bearing pressure these bullets have so I'm hopeing if I push it a little more I can hit 3000, but still want the accuracy I'm getting with the Amax. With the high BC I'll gain 200yds in killing Energy if I get to 3000FPS.
I'm going to try these in my 300WM also.

Re: Info on 300RUM & 215 berger

Well speaking of a 300 WM. A friend and myself did a little comparison the other day. As I said before I am disappointed in my MV. We took my friends 300 WM and loaded some 215's in it and started to work up to a max load. We never did make it to over pressure. Just got to cold. I believe we were at 76 or 78 grains of H1000 and the 300 WM hit 2955 fps. Basically same MV as my 300 RUM with 13 grains less powder. The conditions were very cold and windy. We actually had to stop at times to see the 100 yard target because of blowing snow. Even in these conditions and wind all shots in load development were in a 1.25" group. I think we had them 50 thou off in his rifle. I guess the 300 RUM is just not very efficient.
