Re: 300 SAUM Barrel Swap
You are going to be limited to any of the SAUM, or WSM configurations. You can not go to a 300 win mag, due to case length. The LA 300 RUM, definitely not.
The 300 WSM is a great option, as is any of the WSM bullets. I had one of those, in the rifle that you have, and it was incredibly accurate. I know what you mean about the brass.
