Put my hands on new 300 Ultra today!

I just got back from visting my gun smith today in Achorage. I wrapped my hands around my new custom 300 RUM. Wow! what a job he has done. Actually its just a barreled action. I will send it off to McMillan to have it bedded in a HTG in woodland cammo [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I dont have it yet. I went in and made another payment. AUH I still owe about 600 bucks.

Rifle is on a new 700 action. Set up for switch barrel with a heavy lug and a Lilja #7 straight taper 27" 12 twist barrel. .333 neck diameter. Trigger is sweeeeet!!! 2.5# and breaks like a glass sliver [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] This will be my 600 yard black bear and moose rifle. I dont know if I want to lug this heavy stick up to 5000' where I hunt sheep. If I do I think it would make a heck of a 1300 yard sheep killer. he-he-he [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Regards

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Re: Put my hands on new 300 Ultra today!

another 300 rum. that is great. I just got mine. a sendero in 300rum. just put a ultimate sniper stock on it. epoxyed some lead into the grip, cheek piece, fore end. stock now weighs almost 13 lbs. add the barrelled action (6lbs) and scope (1.5lbs) and I have a heavy bench/long range rig. I am currently loading ammo. Monday, I am putting on a leupold 6.5-20 long range target mildot from Premier Reticle. I am soo anxious to shoot this next week. I hope it groups well.

It seems that Remington has a hit with the .300 RUM. Its an awesome round and has a growing fan club. Any idea when someone else is going to start making brass for it?

Sounds great, meichele. Please post some pics soon.

Lot of people told me the .300RUM would be a "flash in the pan" when I bought my Sendero S/F. Hahahaha, now they are buying one!

As for bullet selection, my .300RUM shot most all bullets well. Especially 190gr. SMK's, with RL25. 93.2gr. of RL25, to be exact..sakofan.. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Put my hands on new 300 Ultra today!

I was going to try RL-25 and H50BMG and H1000. For bullets I will try the 178 AMAX and the 190 SMK. I have no desire to shoot anything longer than the 190 SMK. Hence the 12 twist. I might try some 200 Interbonds if they are not too long.

Sorry guys no pix yet. I still have to pay it off!! Then its going to McMillan. Will be a few months before I put the first round through it.
