Re: Need help in choosing best rifle
I'm going to go the other direction. If you want longevity out of the barrel, I would say 300WM. You will get more rounds down range with the WM than the RUM. I do agree that you should use the 210 Berger in either caliber. That is what I am using right now in my 300WSM.
