300 Weatherby vs. 300 Ultra, is the gain worth the cost?
ive been looking at the big .30s lately, and these are the two options that i keep coming back to...so here is my question:
Is the gain in velocity with the 300 Ultra worth the increased powder useage, brass costs, and felt recoil over the 300 Weatherby?
Re: 300 Weatherby vs. 300 Ultra, is the gain worth the cost?
Based on using 300Wby brass using same cost per lb of powder and same bullet the 300Wby cost more to reload per round than a 300rum if using Rem brass in both calibers the higher cost would be the 300rum. Hard to say which is better me I like both of them since I own one of each. I shot a 30-378 Wby now that was a noticeable increase in recoil and velocity even with a factory brake I decided the gain with that rifle wasn't worth it so sold everything. I like the case capacity of the 300rum for the 200gr bullets alittle better than the 300wby. I think you would be happy with either caliber. Well good luck.
