    Looking for load data for the 338RUM..

    250gr Accubonds with Retumbo,RE-25 and H-1000
    265gr TTSX with Retumbo, RE-25, and H-1000
    300gr Berger with Retumbo, RE-25, and H-1000

    I have contacted all bullet manufacturs and the data they sent me did not have these powders listed.... odd

    Thanks for your help

    Thank you Korhil. I did perform a search but did not come up with these old threads.

    I tried loading the 265 gr TTSX with retumbo last night and the load was super compressed. Are others getting real compressed loads with Retumbo?

    Don't exclude 50 BMG power from the list when considering the 300 gr Berger.

    I don't think enough of 50 BMG can be stuffed in there to cause a problem. Full and no compression gave me well over 2700 w/low ES, SD and puny groups.

    How much powder did you put in there? I believe that all of the RUM cartridges will be a compressed load with Retumbo at 91 or more grains.
