How is the Kick in the RUM. Is it going to knock me off my seat.

Surely no one named Samson is worried about the kick from a little ole rifle! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Seriously, though. These calibers do recoil significantly in rifles that weigh little enough to be carried. That's why I shoot an 18 pounder with a good brake.

I watched a new friend of mine blast away with a 30-378 in a rifle that couldn't have weighed 9 pounds total. It was absolutely hilarious - his hat was falling off and his eyeglasses knocked sideways on every shot...

Like smittyj, I had the Sendero .300RUM, and a Sako 75 .300WM.

I think the Winnie kicks harder.
I put a muzzle brake and a trigger job on it,(Sendero), and enjoyed it enormously!!

1200yds??...OH YEAH!! Great caliber. But, so are the other 2..sakofan.

I recently purchased a Remington Sendero in the 300 Ultra Mag. I love it! After sighting it in I shot three rounds, 150 grn factory ammo, at 300 yards and the end result was a ragged hole. Very nice rifle. Im in the process of getting a newstock (McMillian)and a new trigger (Jewell<--sp). This rifle will become an excellent long ranger for sure!

On the .300 RUM plan on the recoil being double that of a 7mm Rem Mag. A brake will get it back down to 7 mag levels.

For consideration, the recoil of the .300 RUM is roughly the same as the recoil of the .338 RUM. The .338 has higher BC bullets, better wind-bucking, and much greater terminal performance. Food for thought. Don't want to confuse the issue though... :-)

Mark-In Utah,
How is the accuracy in the 338. Is the brass selection any better?

I shoot the 150gr outta my 300 rum. I'd say the kick is about the same as my 7mm STW. Maybe just a hair less.
