Still pondering the .300 **Cana**, with more paper bench racing.

With RL25, the .300 Win Mag case holds .896gr of powder for every grain of water of its max capacity.

.300 Win Mag = 86.4gr of water

.375 Ruger = 94.6gr of water

Thats a gain of 8.2 gr of water. So lets say it will be a gain of 7gr after the neck down takes place (the .300 RUM has 1 gr less than the .375 RUM). Ok I averaged all the loads for a 200gr bullet listed in my Lyman manual, and I come up with it gains 39.6 fps for every gr of powder.

So .300 win mag has a max load of 77.5gr of RL25, so with the new added capacity, I get 84.76gr of RL25. Thats roughly 7 more grains of powder. So 7 x 39.6 is 277fps. So add that to the 2901 of the RL 25, and I come up with 3178 fps with a 200gr bullet. So in a sense, I recreated the .300 Wby, minus the belt and in a 30-06 length action.

**Disclaimer: I by no stretch of the imagination, expect this to be accurate, and no one should even think of trying the loads I have listed in this post. This was imaginary fun.**
