300 WM, 300 WBY Mag or 300 RUM?

If You guys had to choose only one of these, which would you choose for long range hunting? This will be used on Whitetails in Pa. Thanks for the help.

Iam a big fan of the .300RUM and the .300WM.

I would probably take the RUM in a close one. No belt!!

Define what you mean by "long range" too..sakofan..

on pa whitetail, all 3 are going to give you close to the same results. the wby will have a little more ass than the wm, and the rum a little more than the wby. a 200gr bullet is going to wreak havoc on a deer regardless of whether its doing 2700 or 3100fps.

So far as far as I know only Remington is making brass for the RUM. It's good brass.
