Again, thanks!
I didn't mean to come across as "bashing". The other's are right, more case capacity is more case capacity. And maybe your smith wasn't out of line, I don't know what he was thinking. I just understand that the 300RUM is overbore anyway and couldn't see "improving" one. But it's not my gun. I read lots of things on these shooting BB's that I read and just shake my head and wonder "WTF was that guy thinking?" or "WTH does he think he needs such heavy/light for caliber bulltes?" etc, etc. But it's just me not thinking the same way. As for the mag...hopefully you've got one that will allow you to seat the bullets out to touch the lands. If so, then you're using as much of the case capacity as you can. And I'd stick with 180s or 200s in the RUM for best results. Good luck.
