    Hello All,

    I am Brennan, 24, Located near Denver Colorado. My good friend is a gunsmith, helped me build a custom 300 RUM. Been lurking on the site for a little while trying to get info about building loads. I have been shooting for a few years, reloading for a few years, 1st time with big mangum catridges.

    Here is my build.

    HS precision Stock
    700 SS lapped/trued.
    Holland Recoil lug
    Krieger 26" 11.25 Twist SS barrell.
    Seekins precision mag/bottom metal
    badger ordanance bolt knob.
    Timney 510 trigger ( not installed yet)
    Vortex 6-24 Viper PST Mil-rad scope

    Load:
    Berger 210VLD
    Winchester Primer
    Nosler Custom Brass
    US-869 powder.
    3.730 COAL

    Seems to be a solid 1/2 MOA or better gun. Accuracy is good not sure if I want to seek more velocity

    My findings with 210vld and US-869 ( very slow and forgiving)
    99.00 GR= 2950 FPS
    99.5 GR= 2980 FPS
    100.00 GR= 3030 FPS

    This is a new barreland velocity mayspeed up as barrel wears/breaks in fully. Little bit of copper fouling, not sure if its of concern but it shoots dandy.
