Re: .300 RUM established accuracy?

Some will say a 7mm something will shoot farther, flatter.

Actually that's a fact not disputed.

Then another will recommend a big 30 is the way to go, or the .338 has a better BC in the heavies. Why not .50 cal. or better yet 20mm?

You can buy a 50 BMG in any state but Kali. I own three. A 20mm is defined as a destructive device - so you can't just go buy one. You can't carry one or hunt with one like you can a 50 (at least in Montana)

I own two 300 RUMS ( Sendero and a custom Lilja/Kirby), a semi custom 338 RUM and 375 RUM (and a bunch of other guns). If I had to pick between a 300 RUM and a 338 Lapua, I'd go with a 338 RUM [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
