    Well now i've got my wyatt mag box installed i'm going to try out my new hornady OAL tool but I know while seated closer to the lands pressure will spike . What is your sweet load for your 300 RUM . my old load was seated just shy of the factory mag box 85.5 grains of Retumbo & 215M primer nosler custom brass. Iwant to do like most on this site are doing i want to pack all the powder I can get away with and achieve maximum accuracey/safety/ and MV .

    Thanks in advance your help .

    .010 off, 95.5g Retumbo, 215m, not sure the COAL 3.8 something in a Wyatt's, Exbal says (using Litz's g1 velocity banding data) I'm just below 3K fps mv with this and chrono had me a few fps faster about 3020 or so. Very mild--I think the brass will last quite a while and there's plenty of ummph for elk out to 1K at the elevations I hunt--got t 338AX coming for beyond that. Found this load using Jerry Teo's method outlined here in the articles section and it worked very well and quickly--this load has been amazingly consistent at all ranges.

    Definitely work up to my load from well below that. I may have gotten a slower batch of powder, some strange rifle variables, etc. as obviously many are well below a 95.5 g charge. Use at your own risk.

    Went to the range on saturday. 91 grains of retumbo with a 210 VLD and 3.70 averaged 2942 fps. This combo was very accurate and shot a 3 shot .35" group. Sending the information to Kenton for a new turret. Not spending any mote time to get any more speed........dont think I can get any better accuracy than what I have now. Love this stock Remington 700 SPS with HS Thumbhole stock. Hope she shoots well to 800 yards!

    Good job Elkslayer ! I haven't been able to shoot my rifle yet because I took on a side job roofing a 55 square house .11/12 pitch. Man I realize just how out of shape the office job has made me :) shingles are a lot rougher on your fingers then computer keys LOL. I can't waite to get this job done so i can order more reloading goodies and do SOME SHOOTIN :D

    P.S. keep us posted when you strech it out to 800 YRDS

    90.5 gr. of Retumbo, Federal 215 primers, Nosler brass and a 28" Douglas barrel on a Remington 700 Sendero are giving me 3118fps on my Pro Chrony chronograph and .20 to .30 MOA without any pressure signs. OAL is 3.790".
    Hope this is helpful - good luck!
