    Re: starting loads for 300 rum

    Stx, This is what I have had pretty good sucess with in my 300 Rum all fired at 300yds in a stock 26" Sendaro barrel.

    185 Berger VLD 97gr. H-1000 = 3400fps / 1 ragged hole
    200 Nosler AB. 91.5gr. RL-25 = 3260fps / 1 ragged hole
    210 Berger VLD 91.5gr. H-1000 = 3020fps / 1 ragged hole
    210 Berger VLD 94gr. Retumbo = 3100fps / 1 ragged hole
    220 Sierra MK. 91.2 Retumbo = 3000fps / 1" groups

    RL-25 gave outstanding numbers 3263,3267,3261 with the 200AB, however this powder in this caliber is super temp sensitive down here next to sea level where we are. If you go with this powder then I recommend that you work the load up in the middle of August.

    Hope this helps.
    Tim

    Stx- I have had real good luck using 180gr Swift Sciroccos and 99.gr of Retumbo this load will average 3400 out of my 28 inch Krieger barrel and shoots in the .5's @ 100yds. It also performs great on Elk!!

    Re: starting loads for 300 rum

    I just bought a 300 um . I have been reloading for my 7mag and 25-06 for several years with great results.I love those accubonds as they are excellent on muleys and elk. My question when talking temperature is How does temp and elevation effect the zero, say zero in in 90 degree heat in Texas and hunt in 16 degree weather in Colorado. I need to work up a load for white tails in old mexico as well as muleys and elk in Colorado..

    Stx, This is what a 185VLD does to a piglit at about 200yds.


    No mercy!!!
