Yes, 300M.

I always like to make the distinction that the torpedo must run 300 metres in order to arm. If you fire at a ship that is 300 metres away, but moving toward you, the torpedo will not arm, as by the time it hits, the ship will be less than 300 metres away. It's very important that you take this into account, especially when shooting "down the throat" shots at destroyers coming toward you.

You can achieve a hit at 270 meters, but it doesn't happen too often.

I could only see that happening if the target is moving away from you though, otherwise the torpedo cannot travel the 300m required to arm.
