I am shooting a 26” proof 9.4 twist so I cant help with the 11 twist.
I'll buy your RL26 if you don't want it !
Can't find anywhere .
210 or 215 Berger work great, doesn’t mean that they will match up with the twist rate, etc of your rifle. I ---- an elk in Colorado this past fall at 647 yards with 210 vld hunting billets
I'm going to try some 210 VLD and some 212 ELDX IN MY 300 rum this Fri. With a few different powders. I've never shot anything heavier than a 190 VLD. Mostly 185 VLD and 180 TTSX. Stepping into the heavy bullet world. I've had good luck with Retumbo. Has anybody here tried 200 Barnes LRX in their 300 rum ?
Me too. I shoot them in a 30 Nosler. .005 either way from the sweet spot changed accuracy a lot. 80 grains of h1000 is 3100 FPS with these in my gun. Tried ELD-X 212. Hasn’t been as accurate so far. I’m thinking I won’t shoot anything else but the Berger 215 Hybrid from now on.
They wouldn’t out of my 10.5.
I shot the 215’s and now the 230 Hybrids out of my .300 WM with a 10 twist barrel. 1/4 to sub 1/4 at 105 yards if I do my part, plus I held a 6” group with perfect impacts at 1768 last year in SD on steel. I do have a match chamber, but that won’t affect stabilization.
That’s pretty awesome. Mine was 1 1/2”-1 5/8”. I went through 200 of them trying to make them shoot. Grabbed the 185 and right back to a ragged hole.
Who's barrel is a 10.5, just curious?
It’s a factory Remington, supposed to be 10 but it’s actually 10.5.
I was afraid you would say that, I had better check my Sendero, I now have some 215's
Mine is cut back to 23” and rechambered. With 26” you might get enough extra initial velocity to stabilize and they may have had a new button on yours and a worn one on mine. But definitely check it.
IMO the 230 hyb are a bit difficult to stabilize with 1:10". What is the speed you've got with these loads?
