    Would anyone know of where to find some load data for loading Barnes 175 gr and 200 gr LRX into 300 RUM. I can't seem to find any online anywhere. E-Mailed the Barnes folks - no response yet - any help out there? Thank You in advance for any advise anyone may have.

    You'll get a better response from Barnes if you call them.

    For the 175, I would start with 90 gr of Retumbo.

    If you get to 98-100 gr for the 175, then I would start at the same 90 gr for the 200 and expect to max about 93-96 gr.

    I prefer E-Tips and CEB's. I use 98 gr of Retumbo for 180 E-Tips and 99 gr for 180 CEB C21's

    Good shooting and welcome to LRH!

    take a look here


    forum member AkGuide has load data and field reports on caribou with the 200 gr LRX ..

    Welcome to LRH and don't forget to try the search function, a lot of info can be found by doing a simple search, I've found that the guys that frequent this forum are some of the most experienced and knowledgable bunch in anything shooting.... unless it's a day new, chances are they've been there and done that !
