I have hunted with the 300 rummy for years. Large game animals from 108 yds to 970 with berger 185 vld. Pumping little over 3400. Meat damage has yet to be an issue. One large muley lost his heart and lugs out the hole at negative 35 temperature. That is right, no organs in the upper cavity, go figure!
Seating has been an issue as I shot a 700 action in single shot form. Living in eastern mt. I broke down and built the rifle that would fit the game I hunt, where I hunt, and how I hunt. I also have a passion and hunt with the 338 lapua. However, with bullet selection, in my mind the 300 rummy is the hands down winner.
My new ride is a 700 action with a Lilja stainless 30 inch fluted bbl in a 6 taper with a Holland radical brake. Its a 1 in 10, 3 screw and my first. Chambered for a berger 210 vld's seated at 3.649. No more single shot. Surrounded by a HS pro series Sendero stock. Topped with a Night force 8x32 and 1 minute illuminated redicle it will serve me for all my needs. I have no worries about any meat damage with this rifle and bullet.
The 300 rummy shines with long bullets at extended ranges with a disciplined shooter.
