Re: Need help with a 338RUM
I am getting 3250fps with the 93grn of RL25. My rifle has a 28" barrel. Groups at 100 are in the 1/2" range.
I might be able to squeeze a little more speed and possibly a little better groups by taking the time to play with more. I bought this rifle specifically for a sheep hunt I went on in 05. It was late coming in and I had 3 days to get a load worked up for it. I tried the Scirocco's and they did not shoot good (1 1/2" groups), tried the 210TSX and they were acceptable, so I loaded up a bunch and went on the hunt.
I have two 338 Kahn's that Kirby built for me. When it is time to go hunting one of those is what I reach for. As a consequence the RUM has gotten very little attention. One of these days I will do another serious mountain hunt where I want the lighter rifle and will get the RUM tweaked in. But until then it shoots plenty well for blasting yote's out the back door [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
