Re: starting loads for 300 rum

Your best bet for our area and conditions will probably be the H-1000 or Retumbo. Tim went the RL-25 route and it will get your velocity , but it had some temp issues that we found were just not compatable with our weather.

The H-1000 is working very well with his RUM with the 180, 200, and 210gr bullets. Very consistant velocities and great groups.

I am sure he will chime in, here in a little while.

My LSS liked 88g or 92g H1000 with the 200g AB. It also liked 95g Retumbo with the 200g AB as well.

No problem. The 88g H1000 load is mild, but accurate, you can probly start there. The 92g load is around max in my rifle, but still shot very well. The 95g Retumbo load is also around max in my rifle, I'd start around 90-91.

Re: starting loads for 300 rum

stxhunter,

I will get with Tim on his loads today at work. As for the 25, it seems to be good for loads around the mid sized cases, but once you get into the UM size ones in our conditions down here, it don't take a lot of change to get the stuff to start jumping around.

Tim had an excellent load worked up with it and some 180's, and we were shooting it one morning with temps in the mid 70's. That afternoon, I took his rifle over to work on some hogs in one of their pastures, and bout locked the bolt up, with only about a 20 degree change. The case was noticably ruined.
