Got to shoot them today. 91 gr of h-100 3.900 coal. 3014 fps. These buck wind like magic , should have about 1800 plus ftlb of energy at 1k. These have re invented the 300 RUM! Thank you Berger!

28" plus brake..was worried i wouldn't have enough bbl. length to reach 3k fps but was pleasantly surprised , no pressure signs whatsoever at 91gr. Seated just barely touching the lands.

Can't wait for Montana Marine to work something up in the 308 with these.

LOL.....ya know, I did work up a load in the 308 with the Hornady 225gr BTHP. Surprisingly, they flew well at 2500 fps, 1/12 twist.

What velocity are you getting? I stopped at 91gr. , they were grouping really well and called it good.
