Re: .300 Weatherby vs .300 RUM

I own both and the 300rum is faster than the 300wby. I try not to fall into the trap of comparing one cal against the other. Both are very good rounds. I shoot afew Ackely round and for the guys that don't like them one reason is the amount of powder for the velocity gain isn't worth it. To me the extra 100yds in shooting range is worth it and I think you have to look at the 300rum like that besides the velocity you have to look at the energy. Me I say enjoy both rifles.
