Anyone shooting the 300Rem.S.A.Ultra Mag.

I picked one up last 5th of July and have shot this past summer out to 600yds. This fall I took a nice 4x4 mule deer@265yds, and a 6x6 bull elk @ 575yds. I have done some reloading but took the game with 165gr factory loads. Cronyed at 2975-3000fps only, handloads about the same. Thinking of getting a 300 full blown Rem Ultra Mag. Outlaw

Some might disagree with me but the Rem SAUM will always play second fiddle to the WSM.
Reaming it out to a WSM or a RUM ain't a bad idea.

Re: Anyone shooting the 300Rem.S.A.Ultra Mag.

Thanks guys, but there's really not a dimes bit of differance between the two at least that any deer or elk would know about or could tell. And yes the WSM was first and will out sell the RSM which is the under dog but it will do eveything the WSM will and if it dosen't its so close it dosen't matter. Thats the real world. Thanks Outlaw.

P.S. By the way you can't rechamber the Rem S.A.Mag to RUM, its a longer action then the short mag. It just wont work unless the short was made on a longer action in the first place. Its not at least in a factory rifle,I guess if someone wanted too they could build a short mag on a coustom long action. But why when they could go with the RUM. in the first place!

Re: Anyone shooting the 300Rem.S.A.Ultra Mag.

I am shooting a 300 SAUM and really like it. I call it my 308 Fatso. Think of it along the lines of a souped up 308 instead of a scaled down 300 RUM and you are in the right frame of mind for what you can do with this cartridge.
I don't know why everyone immediately compares it to the 300 WSM. There is plenty of room for short 30 cal guns. If we all had to standardize we would all be shooting a 30-06.
No reaming to be done. At about 2.85" magazine length I could not even put an empty RUM case in it.

QH, Outlaw

Obviouslt Rem hurried the SAUM to the market to compete with the WSM... if you look at sales... IMHO the SAUM won't be around very long... now the RUM will... You can rebarrel the RSAUM to a RUM just single feed it and have to extract the bolt to extract a round...

QH you are right about the SAUM being a souped up 308.. which is why I have moved on from my 308.. but the WSM can do some pretty amazing things...

2850+ with 190 and 200 gr bullets
3000 fps with 168 and 175 gr bullets

not quite 300WM performance but alot better than the 30-06 and I think much better than the 30-06AI all out of a SA...

Interestingly Armalite is making an AR-10 in 300SAUM. They claim the brass is better than the 300WSM.
