    Has anyone done load development on rl50 with the 300 rum?
    I'm building up a scendero chambered in this cartridge..
    I have plenty of other powders to choose from in my stock, but I
    Would like to test it on 180/190 hornadys and 200 accubond.
    Im building the rifle as a hybrid... Hunting and a starter long range setup...
    Honestly didn't have the cash to buy a NF or Schmidt Bender... Not too mention I need to learn a lot more about long range shooting, hence this site..
    I'll certainly absorb anything from those who know the art...
    My goal by the end of next year is to get comfortable up to 600 yards.
    Ive taken deer up to 560yards in one shot-- made a few hits at targets up to 760yards.
    Consistency and knowing my limits is the goal..

    ATM, the rifle is off at a custom shop having a vias break installed, I have a NF 15moa base for it, weaver tactical high rings, and a Burris ff2 6.5-20-50 mildot to install on it when she comes back...
    Again, thanks for any insight and load development ideas..

    Yep, been there, done that. I think I've even run a few of my rl 50 loads through your rifle.
