Re: Best \'big\' 30 cal

ok so I have got my heart set on a 300RUM, i even found a friend of a friend of a friend who has one that i was able to shot, and yes thats what i want...
only problem now is the two rifles i was looking at the remington 700XCR or the savage 116fss don't really exist [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]
so, what now? does anyone have any specific rifle to look at that i could actually get? or do any of you gun smiths out there have any ideas of something that you could build up?
thanks!

300 RUM gets my vote. All I have is a factory Sendero with a Jewell Trigger and Leupold optics'. 200gr Accubound, 94gr of Retumbo, Rem mag primer= 3/4in all day long.

The RUM is so easy to load for 200gr Acc/w any powder from IMR4350 to AA8700 shoots tight groups in my gun DP the bullet. Every load i feed this gun shoots!

I own the 300 Rem ultra mag and was shooting 180 gr bullets at 3230 fps today and shot a 1" group at 200 yds. That 300 is very accurate.

Imac,
When you get your 300rum be sure to try the Barnes TSX 168grn. I have a stock (other than a rifle basix trigger) rem. sendero. It shoots the TSXs very well.

Re: Best \'big\' 30 cal

Remington lists the XCR and SPS in 300 RUM i would ring around dealers to find out where you can get one from im shur some dealers dont like selling rifles they dont have on there shelf by ordering in a rifle. They would rather sell you the 300 Win mag on the shelf and will tell you you dont need a 300 RUM it does not matter about need just that you wish to own one that is enough and the dealer should try to obtain one for you. Here in Australia i can get either they do exist.

Cheers Bill
