    I was in a local reloading store on Saturday and just happen to notice they are not stocking 30cal 240gr SMK's. How many have tried these in 300RUM's
    I see they are rated for a 1-9 twist barrel, but someone once said that a 1-10 twist will stabilize them out beyond 600 yards. Anyone have any load data they care to share??? I have yet to make it out to 1000 yards, I have my eye on another long distance bullet but have yet to drop the coin for them.
    Thanks......Chuck
