Re: Questions on 300 RUM ladder testing

I used the OCW method on my last work up using cutting edge 200 grainers (C22). I was skeptical but it worked for me. I posted this in a different forum rifles, bullets, barrels and ballistics. I have also used the ladder method for 220 smks and that worked. I wouldn't be surprised if you find a node near max pressure. I noticed retumbo liked to run at high pressure in my gun otherwise I got vertical.

    Thats the 2nd time now I've heard cutting edge mentioned, only I've heard CEB's I've never heard of them. I'll look into them.
    I started at 88 gr. right off the bat just to sight and see what 210 gr. VLD's do. This load shot very well, but nowhere near max. Have not been back to the range. Maybe this weekend.

    They are a pricey bullet but by far the easiest bullet I have loaded. They are very well made and all I hear is good things other than the price tag. I hope to test these this spring on brown bear. If I miss I know it wasn't the bullets fault these things shoot. I have to test them at 500, 750, and 1000 yards to make sure they stay stable, but they sure shoot at 300.
