    Would anyone know of where to find some load data for loading Barnes 175 gr and 200 gr LRX into 300 RUM. I can't seem to find any online anywhere. E-Mailed the Barnes folks - no response yet - any help out there? Thank You in advance for any advise anyone may have.

    You'll get a better response from Barnes if you call them.

    For the 175, I would start with 90 gr of Retumbo.

    If you get to 98-100 gr for the 175, then I would start at the same 90 gr for the 200 and expect to max about 93-96 gr.

    I prefer E-Tips and CEB's. I use 98 gr of Retumbo for 180 E-Tips and 99 gr for 180 CEB C21's

    Good shooting and welcome to LRH!

    forum member AkGuide has load data and field reports on caribou with the 200 gr LRX ..

    Welcome to LRH and don't forget to try the search function, a lot of info can be found by doing a simple search, I've found that the guys that frequent this forum are some of the most experienced and knowledgable bunch in anything shooting.... unless it's a day new, chances are they've been there and done that !
