240 MK data for 300 RUM



I would like to know where to start with for loading some 240 MK's in a factory Savage 300 RUM. I have some WC872,RL25& H1000. Any and all help will be much appreciated. Thanks, Wayne.

My load is 99 grains of H870. Since it's discontinued I guess I'm going to have to find something else sooner or later.
I plan on trying both the powders Boyd mentions (depending upon how fast I run out of H870).

The closest powder to that you list is WC872. Start a few grains below 99, work you way up and you should find a good load. This is another powder I plan to try.


Thanks Boyd & Jon, that will get me going in the right direction, Wayne.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
