    Hello folks,
    I just joined this site. I'm from Oklahoma, I'm a 14 yr veteran with our local police department. I love shooting, any type of shooting appeals to me. I have been a member of our SWAT team for a out ten years and I hold the rank of lieutenant. This past year, I have taken an interest in long range hunting in my wife's home state of Wyoming. So, now starts the education.

    So here's the deal, I'm building a 300 rum. This rifle will have a bel and Carlson stock, 28 inch Kruger barrel, holland muzzle break and a Remington action. I have a night force 20 moa rail and Burris extreme rings for a Huskemaw 5x20x50mm.
    Bullets are hard to get, but I have a box of Sierra 190 MK, a sample pack of 12 Berger 190 Berger VLD hunting and a sample pack of 210 Berger VLD hunting .
    A managed to scarf up some Federal 215 match mag primers and 50 pieces of Nosler. Brass. I was also able to get 2lbs of Retumbo powder.
    I just about have the barrel complete, have the crown left and thread and index muzzle break. Then I just have to finish the stock and put it all back together.
    I'm asking for advice for the stuff I have on hand, and feed back on the 300 RUM. This round is appealing to me, however my buddy was not happy with my decision to build it.

    I like your choice of 300RUM sounds like you have a good start on working up a load. Just have to play with it and see what works.
