Re: US869 in 300 RUM
I was gonna go out shooting today but the wind is blowing to much for me to even try. I have a rem700 with a 1.220 straight all the way 26 inch fluted krieger barrel with a muzzle brake. HS precision adjustable stock so me and the wife can both shoot it. And the boys. Both the loads i have are pretty mild but i was looking at accuracy more than velocity . The 190 vlds with 94.5 retumbo are coming out at 3094 fps COAL is 3.868 setting just off the lands so i use them in single shot mode. The 180 ballistic silvertips are im guessing coming out around a little less than 3200 ,looking at the nosler book ,with IMR7828 (never chronographed them ) but they are COAL 3.680 which just fits in the magazine. If i can get a 200 accubond to group i will set them to fit in the magazine and if i can get a 210 VLD i set them just off the lands also. At least with the wind blowing i can do some more loading today. Thanks for the info and the posts , guys ,that gives me something else to try .
