Congrats on your Bull Elk. Nice 300 too.

Lots of very good premium ammo available for the 300 RUM and 7mm STW. The Rum has gotten to be so popular even small mom and pop shops tend to carry it these days.

As long as you have an internet connection, have 24-48hrs and are within the CONUS you can get whatever you want.

There are also several custom loaders whom will tailor a load just for your rifle if you like.

It shoots 1 inch groups at 200 yards with 180 gr. Barnes TTSX bullets at 3265 fps. My load is 97.0 grains of Retumbo, CCI 250 primers and RP brass.

I was very happy to take this nice bull with it on 11/6/11 near Cimarron, CO.
Outstanding Howard! Performance is everything. All else is BS. I know those Senderos are shooters. Especially with a good trigger and a little tweaking.

Verny nice animal!
