Actually I am in the middle of testing MagPro and the 165 Nosler Accubond. I haven't found the right load YET!
But I will!
I am shooting it in a 300-RUM Remington 700 BDL SS 26"+3"brake. Factory Rifle.
with a 2.5 lb. trigger job. 4-16x50 Nikon Monarch.

I have However found the accuracy load for me in the 130 GR. Barnes TTSX.
using 106.5 GR. MagPro gives me 3869 FPS and shoots .430 MOA at 100 yds.
I have also used 165 Nosler Accubond and 90-GR RL-22 @3368 fps sooting 3/8 MOA.
I have 32-lbs of MagPro so I will find many more loads for that powder. LOL
Also I have been using the Remington 9.5m primer and the Nosler Tech guy says I will get better powder ignition using the Fed 215 , thus better grps. I will try Fed and CCI and Winchester just to check this out.

Welcome to Hunting Nut !!! Howdy

I agree with Nosler in using the Federals. It takes a lot of heat to get that much powder burning the way it should. Federals are the hottest.

Thank you for the Welcome !
I am also looking for a load using the Barnes 168-165 gr TTSX and or the 180 Gr. TTSX, and I will probably get around to the 150 TTSX.
So if any of you have an Accuracy Load using those bullets in a 300 RUM. Please let me know.
