Default 300 RUM

Looking at getting a 300 ultra in an SPS M700, and just wanted to know if people are really getting the velocities shown by some of the powder/bullet companys. (150gr-3500fps, 165gr-3400fps, 180gr-3250fps, 200gr-3000fps) reloader's nest even show one load w/ a 165gr bt being driven 3670fps by 96grs of rel22. Sounds way too good to be true. I know all rifles shoot different, but just wanted to know what you guys were getting. Thanks, Brett

My standard load was 95gr of H1000 with 180gr partition. It shot 3250fps.

99.2 of Retumbo chrono's 3300 with a 180 Partion in mine. It shoots so well Its the only load I use. I did chrono 180 Accubonds with Retumbo too. I started low and worked up no sign of pressure when I reached 99.2 I chrono'd it 3400+ I'm sure that was over pressure. To get them to shoot good I had to seat them out so far they wouldn't fit in the magizine. When I shortened them up so they would fit they didn't shoot so good. Now I just have the one load. good hunting KH
