    I backordered 100 of each of the .30 bullets and I'm trying to put a hog hunt together for next month. I want to see how they do on game too. I'd probably use a 300RUM to drive them but it might be a .300PRC or 30Nosler.

    I can't remember his LRH screen name but his name is Ed Whipple and does a lot of pig hunting with videos. He frequents the Creedmoor Nation in FB. May he'll chime in.



    Steve,

    Not sure if you've this ...

    You can shoot them in a .308 if you have the twist. You will not get much speed but it will still shoot and should do well.

    I like that idea! Yall should get a Hammer hunt together for Texas pigs. Would be fun hunt with some tasty meat at the end!

    What kind of speed with the 300 rum and the 250so you think? Around 3200?

    There is no way a 300RUM will shoot a 250 that fast. Maybe 3000fps. Most guys shoot 230 Bergers 3000-3050fps.

    Out of my slow barreled 300 WM the 230 outruns the 215 around 1650 yards. That's the spot for my rifle. I don't remember the exact stats for the comparison but any way I ran the numbers the 215 would beat the 230 until around that point.

    I don't know what is so funny about this? Anyone could get the 250 to travel 3000+ maybe 3450...but I would tie a string to the trigger and hide behind a really big tree, or concrete wall 300 yards back.... before I yanked on that string!

    I would bet something like a 30XC/30XC Imp or similar would do around 3200 with 250's. That's what I'm planning on doing anyway. :D

    I would guess 2900 to 3000. Just a guess

    Had them telling me that they can probably get enough velocity to stabilize in a 10 twist... I like FB for the comedic value.

    I shoot 300 grain SMKs at 3300 FPS from my .300 win mag. It’s a 1:12 twist too. My NC star scopes gets me to 1500 yards easy.

    Lol...I got the magic touch. Get your Lapua to .50 cal performance and don’t even get me started on your 6.5CM. I post all my load data on FB. :D
