    I am sure that this type of post has popped up before, but I suck when it comes to searching the forums for old posts. So, thanks in advance.

    I am looking for load recommendations for my 300 Rum using the 208 Amax. I use Retumbo with good success for my 190 VLD's, but am having trouble info on the 208's.

    Also, do the Amax's typically like to be jammed or jumped. I usually jam the VLD's and am not worried about mag length as I shoot this one as a single shot.

    I have a 28 inch HV Krieger on the rifle with a 1-11 twist.

    Thanks again,

    Also, bought some Remington brass today and it is the absolute worst brass I have seen. 18 of the 50's flash holes were not even close to being centered. Sucks that there are only two commercially available manufactures for this stuff (that I know about).
