Re: Newbie and 300 RUM
hi, just follow their advice.
I was like you one year ago, and for my 300rum, I found the perfect powder with Retumbo.
91gr Retumbo, 9 1/2m rem primer, 200ab round, and 3.607aol.
ALWAYS START WITH MINIMUM LOAD AND GO UP WITH 0.3/0.5increment TILL FIRST SIGN OF PRESSURE.
THAN STEP BACK.
never exceed the maximum load for your rifle.
tge best powder to start are Retumbo / h1000, because are not sensitive to temperature variation.
- read, read, and ask, than do something stupid and regret later.
- look for pressure signs; hard or unusual presure when lift up the bolt, primer loose, case crack, or stuck in the rifle, or bolt marks imprint on the case base.
you have to options to fin the perfect comb for your riflr;
1. ladder test
or 2. the old fashion way- load 3-5loads for every 0.5gr increment powder starting with min load and go up to the first sign of pressure.
you have to choose the tightest group,and repeat for confirmation.
