I am trying to gather info on a 300 rum load. I have this weapon on order and am going to reload for it. It is a rem 700 sps with a 26" standard contour tube. I have read that 200gr. accubonds sitting on retumbo are performing very well. Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

I am mainly setting this gun up for elk and bigger game! But with that being said I want something for the windy days here in OK to help buck the wind on whitetails! I appreciate all the advice. If I have any more questions I feel like this is the place to get help! Does anyone have any experiance with the knoxx stocks. If so what is your opinion?

Make sure that your stock fits properly with that SPS, I had trouble with mine and had to get the thing bedded before I would quit getting a flyer. 200gr AccuBond's in the RUM are hard to beat and from my experience they don't tear meat to badly when shooting deer sized game.

The 200 grain Accubond and Retumbo will work well. If Retumbo does not give good results, RL-25 will. I've used the .300 RUM for most of my hunting for 12 years now, and I can assure you the Accubond works very, very well. mtmuley

Well it depends on where you are hunting and what you are hunting. The best load is the load that is the most accurate for your rifle. Bigger game need heavier bonded bullets, especially at Ultra mag. velocities and it prob. wouldn't hurt if you are hunting deer sized game at long range to stick with the premiums so you don't blow them up on impact. You might load to shoot at 300 + yards, but get your shot at 25. That is what hunting is all about. I have heard good things about the accubonds and interbonds in the ultra mag. Christensen arms uses the interbond 180 grain in your cartridge to shoot everything and if hit properly nothing needs another round. JMHO. good luck.

I have loaded 96 grains of H1000 and the federal 215M primer behind the Nosler 165 and 180 ballistic tip bullets with good results.
