Re: What OAL in your factory Rem 700, 300 RUM\'s?

thanks, do you guys hunt without them fitting in your mag? or are these your target loads?
I don't mind them not fitting at all, except that it would be nice for hunting just in case you needed a follow up shot..
thanks

    I load my 338 RUM to 3.650" in my M700LSS.

    JD,

    Can you reach the lands on that 338 RUM with any bullet?

    Am rigging one up to shoot single shot and want to seat Sierra 250s or WC 252 w/the front of the boat tail at the base of the neck and wonder if there is still some "jump" to the rifling??

    Also, have any loads that you would recommend......

    Roy,

    With a 225 gr Nosler AB in a fire formed case, I am hitting the lands with a COL of 3.884" That puts the base of the bullet approx. at the bottom of the case neck.
    My magazine will max out at 3.692" and my hunting loads are at 3.650".

    Here is my load data:

    200 gr Nosler BT
    RL22 90.0 grs
    best 3 shot group @ 100 yds .325"

    210 gr Nosler PT
    RL22 90.0 grs
    best 4 shot group @ 100 yds .425"

    225 gr Nosler PT
    RL22 89.5 grs
    best 3 shot group @ 100 yds .450"

    225 gr Nosler AB
    RL25 96.0 grs
    best 3 shot group @ 100 yds .587"
    COL was 3.600", will try 3.650" to improve group.

    250 gr Nosler PT
    RL25 90.0 grs
    best 4 shot group @ 100 yds .490"

    Hope this helps you out.

    Regards,

    JD338

    Roy,

    I just noticed a typo. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    210 gr Nosler PT
    RL22 90.0 grs
    best 4 shot group @ 100 yds .425"

    <font color="blue"> </font> Charge weight should be 92.0 grs RL22

    My notes also indicate a 1.285" 3 shot group at 300 yds,
    2 shots were 0.590".
    Also, all these Nosler bullets are factory seconds.

    Sorry for the confussion. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Best Regards,

    JD338

    For hunting bullets, with plastic tipped, my OAL is 3.660" for my 300 RUM to reliably feed from magazine. For target bullets, SMK's they are at 3.750", for my 210g bergergs, they are at 3.8" The smks and bergers are single shot only.
