Re: looking for loads for 300 Rem SAUM

58gr Varget is my best load. This is not a max load, but it shoots the best for me. I get around 3150 fps with this load shooting 150 Accubonds out of my Model 7.

I shoot 59gr Varget with my 140 Barnes bullets at 3220 fps. These are my hunting loads until I run out of bullets or barrel.

I use Remington 9.5M primers too.

For me, it was between 60 and 61grs, but the groups were getting worse and worser. (I know worser aint a word)

I shoot berger 190gr vld's with a federal 210 primer and 58.5grs of vv N550. Five shot groups average .5moa and velocity on average is 2880 with an extreme spread of less than 10fps.
