    Re: 30 Cal Build

    Which 30 caliber has the best balance between ballistics, velocity, brass life, (efficient case-BURNS LEAST POWDER), brass availabilty/durability and least reloading effort, per net cost of shooring a round? RUM, NORMA,WIN,DAKOTA, WEATHERBY, H&H?

    Re: 30 Cal Build

    Here's a post from another sight from an accomplished shooter, probably where I'd start my research if I build a 300 cal.

    260 shooter,

    Hey!

    Getting ready to build a .300 Norma mag myself reamer is on the way. It will shoot and barrel life should be close to the Hulk at about 2000-3000 rounds of pin point accuracy. This cartridge will shoot out to one-mile no problem with 208's and or 240's.
    Retumbo or H-1000 will do the trick with about 82-85 grs. with 240's and 88- 90 grns. with 208's - 210's. Velocitys will be around 3100-3200 with 208-210 and 2900 plus with 240's.
    Barrel life is greatly misunderstood with most rifles. 1000 yard BR proves it a bunch.

    Hope to see you and your daughter again soon!

    Tom

    I'd be willing to guess he has some 30 cal experience.

    Defiance makes actions that will work, so does BAT, the last one I got to see was on a 1.550" receiver BAT w/30" BBL.

    Besides... who else on here is shooting a 300 Norma Improved??? Anybody? That alone makes me feel all vroom-vroom lol

Oh and I reload so wildcats arent and issue. Please help me decide.
    300 Rum. I have both it and the 300wm and love them both but the Rum for long range shooting is spectacularly superior.

    There are some bigger, badder, kooler wildcat 30's along with the 300 Wby, but all things considered the Rum was my choice and I'll never regret it.
