    mine loves 210 bergers and retumbo. I rebarrel Remington sendero with 28in Brux barrel. gets 3125fps and shoots half minute out to 1000yds. I took it to Africa and outfitter couldn't believe how it took animals out to 500yds. 5 large animals 5 shots all (dit) dead in tracks. I have never been able to get accrbonds to shoot in any of my guns. all my guns which I have to many of love bergers.

    Haven't shot 230 bergers, but i do 210 Bergers with 91.0 gr of Retumbo at .010 off in a custom 700 with Krieger 28" (with Vais brake) at 3150 fps.....accuracy to 500 yds is awesome, groups at 1" or under.....yes, at 500 yards. SORRY, just noticed i had already posted this info....But the OAL is 3.975 WITH A Hornady oal comparator and insert . Factory length brass.

    H1000 hammers in two of the three rums we have with 215 hybrids. The other loves n570 with the 215.

    I'm brand new here, and I know this is an old thread, but had to post my pet load for my 300 Rem Umag. I've had mine since it was a new caliber, and there was zero information out there on the web. It was probably the hardest weapon I've ever tried to load for. I tried every powder/bullet combination I could think of, with nothing coming close to sub moa. I was about to give up when I put a 180 Grain Partition in front of the new at the time Retumbo. Bingo, they shot like match grade bullets at a hair outside I/2 moa. The hotter the Retumbo, the better it shot. At 96.6 the Federal 215' showed the slight signs of pressure. 96.5 pushes the Partitions at 3315fps with my Chrony. I'm not sure if my Chrony is that accurate. I bought a new Leupold VX6 with a TMOA Retical to mount. Sighted it in, and the second time I took it to the range, the barrel decided to give it up. I have probably put 2000 rounds down range. I'm getting a new Krieger for it, but I guess that's another thread. Thanks for the cool new site.

    I couldn't get mine to shoot very good with the original barrel also. It turned into a 7mm rum and it is accurate now with a Bartline barrel. I have an older sender that was a 300 Jarrett that is soon to be a 300rum but I think with a nut.

    I tried many different powders to try and get my Sendero to shoot under MOA. What really surprised me
    was the powder that worked best in my rifle was IMR4350...max load 82grains with a 180 grain swift scirraco
    bullet. This load was the accuracy load in one of my Nosler reloading books too. I'm getting 3190 or so ....
    (can't remember exactly) fps. out of this load. Goes to show that many barrels are different and sometimes
    fussy when it comes to finding the right combination of powders and bullets. :D

    My rifle has 30" 1:10" Bartlein barrel, PT&G trued Remington action, AICS CIP chassis. The barrel was hand throated to optimize seating 230gr Berger Hybrids. Obviously, loaded single shot.

    230gr Berger Hybrids
    H50BMG 98.5gr
    COAL 3.944", .047" jump
    MV 2978 fps, SD 10

    I have also tested Warner 198gr monolithics and have a 1:8" 30" Krieger barrel arriving soon. Test in the 1:10" barrel yielded:
    198gr Warner monolithics
    92.0gr Retumbo
    COAL 4.070"
    MV 3195 fps, jump is not a concept
    But I haven't tested for accuracy in the too slow twist barrel.
