Re: US869 in 270 AM and 300 RUM

fifty,
Thanks for the input. Much appreciated. Maybe I'll get around to trying some 869 in the 7rum with the heavier bullets. This is a great place to just read and learn.

I'd agree w/Kirby on this one. US869 may be a little slow for the 200 gr and lighter bullets. I'm trying for the reasons he stated. I've already got a killer accuracy load for the 240 SMKs w/Retumbo so I just thought I would give the US869 a chance in the RUM w/the 210s. Thought it might open up a space on my powder shelf. I'm also shooting a 30" bbl.

From what I've seen by shooting it in conditions from 20 degrees to 90 degrees I'd say There is about a 100-150 fps variation. Again this is just by comeups and extraction can get a bit sticky as temps get up over 75 if I don't keep the ammo cool.

I'm not sure. I'll check for you when I load this week. I don't think there is though.
