i'm quite certain that with either caliber the end result will still be the same but i'm always up for something different. one upside i see to the win mags is that i already have the loading dies for it. but anyone that could shed some light, feel free to share.
There is no better or worse just more powerful.
Both the 300WM and the 300RUM are easy to load for and very accurate. the difference is that
the 300 RUM will extend your effective range 200 to 300 yards on game.
I don't see the belt as a problem if chambered and loaded correctly. So if you wan't/need more
go with the RUM. if you are happy with the Win Mag "Be Happy".
