    I assumed 26" barrel. 3189 fps.

    Notice the pressure...

    Yes, a 1:10 twist 26" barrel. Why would hodgdon go up to 96 grains of H1000 for a 180 grain bullet in 300 RUM when 94.5 is supposedly way over pressure.

    Why do you guys use quick load? I have been loading 26 yrs and never needed it. To many variables to look for answers that way.

    When working up this load there was no abnormally heavy bolt lift, only a VERY slight ejector mark.

    Well if it shoots good then shoot it at 94.5 just work up with every new jug of powder

    I will see how case life is, if its not to great i will back it down a couple of grains. I didnt get to chronograph this load because the sun was too low for the chronograph to work and we leave tomorrow for elk hunting so i wont have a chance to find another lighter load or chronograph this one until after the hunt.

    I personally like it for being able to experiment new combinations with,.. I got tired of purchasing what I thought might work well just to find out they didn't or there was a better combination out there instead, It eliminates a lot of guessing and puts the proof in actuality for you.

    I found out that the RL#17 powder works fantastic for the combination I wanted for my .338 WM for elk hunting,.. I tried it in the program 1st and then in the rifle with great results just like it deduced it would,.. great program!

    Riley, try rl25 in your rum with a 180-- 1/2 moa out of mine with hornady 180's at 3280 with easy bolt lift at 93 grains rl25 with, rem brass, and a 215-- still a couple of grains below max.

    Quickload calculates pressure based on a number of varibles besides the obvious.
    Start pressure
    OAL
    Case volume
