Re: Should I go to a 300 RUM???
I have to agree, there's absolutely nothing wrong with being infatuated with a little power, as long as one can handle it! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] This is especially valid when talking of long range hunting. Sure, for 'normal' hunting ranges out to 250yds, the .06 family and the like will do it every time.
Ok, so you're in the .300 Weatherby/RUM range as far as your favourites go. My pick of the two would be the RUM largely because of the availability of suitable long range rifles such as the Sendero. There's an H-S Precision HTR in .300 Win Mag available here but the price is $A4500! It would solve all my long range hunting/shooting problems though!
I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to become a vegetarian!
