New Berger 230 grain 30 cal

Has anybody had a chance to shoot these yet? I just ordered up 100 of them and I can hardly wait to put them through my 300 RUM. I know they haven't been out long but it looks like a couple people on Sniper's Hide have had a chance to shoot a few so I was hoping some people over here may have got their hands on some by now. If you have any reviews, load data or thoughts on them for that matter it would be greatly appreciated.

rscott,

What will you be shooting them out of? I see that guys shooting the 300 WM are getting in the mid 2700's with this bullet and H1000. I'm hoping that I can get over 3000 FPS with my 300 RUM and Retumbo out of a 28" barrel.

I'm going to try these in a first generation Sendero that was a 7RM that I just rebarrelled with a factory takeoff 300WM from another Sendero. I think it's 26" 1:10. But, I need to verify that.

The seller said it was low round count. But, I think it's been shot a lot as I can detect some throat erosion with just a magnifying glass. I traded a takeoff that was in better shape, but I was through with it and wasn't going to use it anyways.

I test fired it with some factory ammo and was about an inch at 100yds. If it'll do just a hair better than that with a .711 BC bullet, I'll be happy. Either way, I'll eventually put a proper custom barrel on it.
