I'm a local hunter from Norway, which would like to have some info regarding re-loading of 300R SAUM cartridges.
I bought this rifle a week ago a REM 700 , but not been able to find any loading data for this cartridge yet.
Most commen powder used over here is Vhitavouori (140-160)
Bullets any brand. (.308- 150-200 gr)
Primers Federal-winchester etc
Is there anybody out there, which can give me some info regarding this type of loads, I will be thankfuly.

.300 RSAUM?

ajv: Yes, I have reloading data on the .300 RSAUM. I spent about 2 years trying to perfect a load for my Rem 700 BDL. Here is what worked the best:

Case: Remington
Case Trim: 1.999 inches
Primer: Federal 215
Powder: IMR 4350 - 64.5gn
Bullet: Barnes TSX - 165gn
C.O.A.L.: 2.811 inches

Group: 0.89 inches at 100 yards
Velocity: average is 3050 feet per second, std dev is 9 feet per second

I have a whole spreadsheet of loads that I have tested for this rifle. This is the only one that gave me consistent results. Also, the 700 BDL has a very short magazine, so heavier bullets must be seated quite deep.

Hi -browningbbr-

300R SAUM

Thanks for info.

I was not able to find any IMR 4350 powder in my region , but used N-160, which is very close in burning rate to the mention powder you used.

Case: Remington
Case Trim: 51 mm
Primer: Rem 9 1/2 mag
Powder:VHIT N-160 - 63 gr
Bullet: Norma Oryx 180 gr.
C.O.A.L.: 71 mm
m/sec: 840


I fired 5 shot at 200 yrds, with a acceptable spreed: 3 with in 23 mm . The other two was grouped 30 mm over only 10 mm apart.
I use a Millett (4-16 x 56 mm) sight, which is very good for this kind of range.

An other intresting load for this caliber (300R SAUM) is:

Case: Remington
Case Trimmed 51 mm
Primer: Rem 9 1/2 mag
Powder:VHIT N-140 - 55,3 gr (max load: 57,5 gr)
Bullet: Hornady # 30312 A-Max 155 gr.
C.O.A.L.: 70,1 mm BC: 11 mm
m/sec: 910 - Max 950 m/sec

At 100 yards less then 12 mm spreed, 200 yards 35 mm. Bullet drop between 100-200 yrds less then 50 mm.

I will try out diff loads in the near future, and check out the new links you gave me.

Thanks again,

Brgds

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
