300 Win vs 300 RUM vs 30-378 Weatherby

I am kicking around the idea of a long range rifle in a Browning X-Bolt Long Range Hunter carbon fiber in 300 Win or Remington Sendero II in 300 Rum or a 30-378 Weatherby in a Mark V Carbon fiber. Any thoughts. Thanks.

Re: 300 Win vs 300 RUM vs 30-378 Weatherby

I have a sendero II in 7mm rem. and I love it. Also have a Rem. 700 with HS 2000 stock. Its in 300RUM, I love it as well. I was going to rebarrel the RUM but it shoots .5 MOA at 200yds so why change it. The sendero will do the same. I have been really happy with both.

The win will net you a bit better bbl. life; the rum will be 200 fps faster give or take with a given bullet, and the roy just burns more powder than the rum for little gain in standard barrel lengths. All are good rounds with cost effectiveness going to the win and rum. You'll have to line roy's pockets if you go there.
I shoot both the 300 win in a lh browing a-bolt ss boss and the 300 rum in a lh m700bdl.

Re: 300 Win vs 300 RUM vs 30-378 Weatherby

Go with the Remington RUM, if the other two do not shoot, your pretty much screwed as far as rebuilding. Can be done but the outcome can be tricky compared to rebuilding a Remington 700.

Plus, in a 26" barrel length, the 30-378 will not outperform the 300 RUM by ALOT if loaded to the same pressures. But you will pay through the nose for extremely expensive brass that really is not the best quality as far as strength goes. Plus, your burning about 15 grains more powder for 50 fps more velocity.

I would not look at the Browning, just to many issues lately with Browning rifles to recommend, stick with the Rem.

Better yet, if you can afford it, start custom from the ground up. May surprise you what it would cost for a full custom rifle on a budget.

Another vote for the RUM....Go with the non-belted case, just seems a bit more 21st century.

I wouldn't consider any of the three, but head strait to a .300 WBY mag, or a .300 Ackley

I have owned, loaded for and shot all 3. I am happily back to my 300 win and with 215 Bergers, it is a very nice set up. Good brass available as well a factory match ammo.

I would definitely go with the Sendero. I have probably set up a dozen 300 win Sendero's for 1000 yard rifles and they all have been able to hold 1 moa at 1000, some better.

If you want to hunt elk past 1000 then go 300 rum or 30-378 with 230 Bergers.

For elk to 1000 and deer to 1300 and steel or rocks to a mile the 300 win Sendero is a good rifle.
