Re: 7mm RUM or 300 RUM

I have the 7 ultra, 300 ultra and the 338 ultra. The most accurate, by far, is the 7mm. The most universal is the 300 and the most fun to shoot is the 338. I have taken animals at several distances with all, and the answer is you can't go wrong with with any of them. I couldn't pick so I ended up getting all three.

Re: 7mm RUM or 300 RUM

Shot my new custom 7 ultra today. Benchmark 29inch barrel, 180 VLDH bullets. Best it shot at 100yds was:
50 BMG .364 group 3200fps
Retumbo .471 group 3260fps
Only 3 shot groups. Next time I will shoot 5 shot groups. Looking forward to shoot longer distances.
Should have my custom 300 ultra done in a month.
