Re: Info on 300RUM & 215 berger

Shooting a 700 ultra with a 26" tube Vias brake
215 Berger hybrid base to ogive 3.989
Federal match mag primers
86.0 grains of h1000 way below max
Crony speed 2920 ( hard to believe)
But ballistic program drops are correct
Shoots very well . 1/2 minute groups at 100 yards
Had them to 600 yards and below moa at that range
Very happy 😜

    Wow birddog, that's awesome! I'd love to get 3000 out of the 215s or 2900 out of the 230s. Kasey on here helped me out with a box of 215s & I found the 230s at Midway, so it won't be long before I'll know for sure.
    All things equal there about the same at 1400yds with 215s at 3000 & 230s at 2800 wind drift, velosity, an energy are nearly identical.
