Re: POWDER FOR THE 300 RUM?

It took quite a while to find my 300 RUM load. Using a Lilja 27" barrel on a REM 700 action, I found that 98.8 grains of H1000 did the trick for me. My 180 grain Barnes TSX moves out at 3450 fps and groups just under half MOA. I found RL-25 and RL-22 produced higher velocities, but the fps had a greater variance between shots.

Re: POWDER FOR THE 300 RUM?

Hey all new guy here. I have been running 180 gr Accubonds in front of a max load(102.5 gr) of Retumbo. They have been grouping @ around an inch consistantly. This load is on the warm side in my gun. Any RE 22 or 25 recipes folks want to share would be appreciated. Thanks
