Components are sold out around here, but at my buddy's gun shop, he had three boxes of 200 grain Accubonds. He let me have them for $30 each. I always liked this bullet in my .300 Win Mag, so I'm happy to try them in the RUM.

I'm interested in hearing any pet loads you may want to share. Especially if they were in a stock barreled 700 Long Range.

Thanks in advance !

Have any retumbo? That is pretty much the classic RUM powder. Just a guess but I would say you end up between 90-92gr. That seemed to be pretty common in threads.

I was running 91.5 in remington brass, going to swap over to nosler brass and see where I end up.

Been trying for 3 days, cant find any Retumbo, H1000, or RL25. A friend in Colorado is selling me his RL25.

I did find US879 at my friends shop, but velocity looks low.

180 CoreLokts shoot great out of mine. Built a decent load using the 220 ELD-X but going to try the 190 ABLR to see if it bugholes like the CoreLokts.

Haven’t tried them in my rum yet. Worked great in my 338. 87.gr h1000 is working good in my factory 300 rum. Shot at a 1000 the other day. Berger 210 vld hunting

300 RUM => ADG Brass, Fed215, H1000 @ 89.2, OBL 3.095 (approx .050” off lands) equals a .3MOA load for me in a hunting rifle at 3090fps @ 3000’MSL with about 72 degrees outside. YMMV
