Do all [legal] bullets over there need to be wearing full metal jackets?

For hunting, we're allowed to use all kind of bullets which are expressly designed for the purpose of hunting, that includes VLD hunting bullets! Bullets specially designed for competition, training like A -max, Matchking, etc. are not! Concerning hunting bullets, we have almost the same opportunities like the Americans plus a big and good European offer in various kind of bullet types and manufacturers.

    considering all the new high bc .30 cal hunting bullets, is .300WM or RUM now just as good alternative for long range hunting as the 7mm rem mag?

    The 7 RM was never a "better" long range hunting rifle than the 300 WM and especially not the 300 RUM. There is no comparison between the 7 RM and the 300 RUM. I have shot both. 70 gr of powder vs 100 gr of powder? 180 gr bullet @ 2900 fps vs 230 gr bullet (with higher BC) @ 3100 fps?

    +! Absolutely correct, and as I recommended you before, take a close look at the 8x68S. An excellent long range cartridge with more than sufficient knock-down power for both big and dangerous game. BTW, this hammer is easy to reload since it's beltless. If that's not enough power for your taste (I doubt it) go for the 300- or even better 338RUM.

    I have heard some rumors that feeding the .300rum isn't that reliable comared to lets say .300wm.

    The case design ist very nice indeed, the caliber itself obsolete though, or are there any new match grade 8mm bullets applicable to long range shooting different than the 240gr SMK?
    A .30x68 would be really nice, though I fear it wouldn't be worth the effort since it is too similar to a vanilla .300 WinMag performance wise.
