Of course those are all just planned yardages and we all know how things like to vary from the "plan". So in the end I need a general purpose rifle that will kill an elk @ 1000 yds and I think the 300 RUM is more than capable. Keep the opinions coming!
Not really much to add. The Rum will meet your needs very well.

Re: make my decision for me

The RUM will suffice. The Lapua will outperform you expectations. You can get the Lapua to shoot as flat if not flatter than the RUM with 225-250 grain bullets, many of wich still have good b.c's. I really like the 300 RUM, but when you go bigger it just gets better.

Then the actuall rifle comparison. You cant even compare the quality of a Senduro to an Accumark. Wby wins hands down. The action is stronger, smoother, and has a shorter throw. The Accumark is about ideal for a hunting rifle when it comes to weight, not to heavy and not to light. That being said, the Wby is also alot more $$$ and they have almost 0 aftermarket parts.

The Remington is good, actually the Senduro's are great, especially for the price.

Re: make my decision for me

The weatherby accumark is a awesome rifle and I have had several, but trying to lapp 9 lugs in to full contact instead of 2 is tough. The reason I would go sendero is if it doesn't shoot great out of the box it will usually be easier to get it to shoot excellent. Weatherby's seem like if they don't shoot excellent it's more of a chore to get them there. Just find a sendero 338 Ultra that should be easy.....

300 Win Mag load with 230 Berger's at 2700 fps! Out of your choices, 300 RUM with 230 Berger's!

The thing is that I have never seen a Wby Mark V not shoot well out of the box.
