question is, should i think of rechambering to something different. first thought was 338, but from my initial research, it wont do me much good. heard 300ultra can get me some flat long range shooting! what is your thoughts?
by the way my 300wm is a savage model 110 if i remember right. has the accutrigger as well
What do you want out of the new chambering? Flat shooting? More energy? 338s are great for more energy over .30 cal, but they aren't "flat shooting". A 300RUM over a 300WM isn't a huge
change in much of anything; drop, energy, extended distance while over minimal expansion velocity. IMO, you can improve those things easier with bullet choice instead of more powder. A 300RUM will be a little "flatter shooting" over your 300WM, but I'd say 95% of the critters you will use it on will not be able to tell a difference.If you go 338, chamberings will be limited to your action.
