I'm curious what you are getting out of your 300RUM with 200 grain bullets with what barrel?
Bumping a shoulder only helps with closing the bolt easy. [/quote]
We shoot the 200 grain Sierra Game Kings in the 300 RUM. We also load 180 Sierra"s(this is our main load). I will have to chrono the 200 grain load.
We use the factory rifles, and factory barrels. We have the LSS, and the BDL rifles.
I am not sure what you mean by bumping the shoulder helps with closing the bolt. To me, in a hunting sitruation, closing the bolt is important.
I do not care to tell the amount of RL25 we put in our cases, but it is a fairly stout load(not sticky stout). But then IMO if you are going to shoot the big dog's, then you should let them eat. If I want to shoot a lighter load I would buy a 300 Winchester, or a 30-06.
I guess my point is that in a hunting situation, function of my ammo is more important than ultimate accuracy. Ultimate accuracy is normally not attainable in a hunting situation to start with. Tom.
