    Way excited my .300 RUM is almost done. Trevor @ Cloud Peak Gunworks has been building my guns. This one has a Brux Barrel, Timney Trigger, Wyatt box, Sako Extractor, H&S Stock, Muzzle Break, Cerakoted Graphite, Spiral fluted bolt, Huskemaw Scope. I am going to run Berger 185's just because I have 5 boxes of them. Ultimately I would prefer to run the Berger 215's but we will see how they shoot. [/ATTACH]

    I think its a 4? I will have to ask him. I ask him to make me a shooter and he does exactly that! I have a 7mm CPG also and it shoots reaaaaaaal good!:D

    Nice looking rig!

    I wouldn't worry too much about using the Berger 185's. I use the 185 gr. Juggernaut OTM Tactical in my 300 Jarrett with great success long range. Very tough bullet BTW.

    Great looking rifle! I shot the 185gr Berger's in my 300RUM and they shot good, so I think you should be ok with them.

    What load/length were you using I couldn't get ther 185s to shoot in mine. Sitting on 2 1/2 boxes of them. Lol I stepped it up to the 230gr Bergers and it shoots really good!

    Great looking gun. My 300RUM really likes the 208 A-Max and at about 1/2 the price of the Berger it is a consideration. Don't get me wrong, the Bergers are real good also. I am working through a batch of the 230 Hybreds that are looking real good. Not as good as the 208's right now but I am getting 3000 and still messing with seating. Best of luck ...love the big 30's.gun)

    What load are you using with the 230gr pills?

    89.5 Retumbo, Fed 215 mag. match primers going 3000fps out of a 27" Shilen select match H.V. 10 twist. Start at 87 Retumbo and see how it goes. At 2800fps you are still supersonic at 1800yds.gun):cool:

    I got my best accuracy at 90 grs of retumbo with no pressure issues. What is your group size?

    Thanks Dave. I almost turned my .300 rum into .338 rum but decided I need one of those also lol. I am just waiting on bolt fluting @ this point. I am ready to test drive it for sure!:D

    I will post pics as soon as its complete. I have a buddy who had one built a month ago to the exact specs of mine. He is shooting 96.0 h1000 3.058 comparator length 215 fed primer & 185 booger vld. He has been making nice bug hole groups but running a bit slower than where I run mine. He has been right in the 3250 fps range.
