Re: Most Popular powder for the 300 RUM with 180 grain bullets
I have been trying to hit my 1150 gong with 180g btips and retumbo. Not very consistently, but thats a long ways off for a hunting bullet, and trying to compete with the 10-15 mph wind. Anyways, my load is accurate using 95g retumbo. I shot a 4 inch group with it at 500 yards before I swung over to the 1150 gong. So that made me feel halfway good. velocity is right at 3300fps. I have also had good luck with H-1000 using 96g, but that was with the 180g ctbt's. Velocity was 3330fps, and it grouped just as well as the Retumbo load at 500 yards.
