Some of us (me included) feel that a 300 RUM is an overbore and too much. It takes a 3.6" length action and magazine.
The 30/375 Ruger will fit in a 3.4" length action and magazine. I have reloaded for a few 300 RUM and shot them and find like most overbores they are finicky (YMMV).
I would not have a 300 RUM without a muzzle brake unless the rifle is at least a 10 pounder. With the 30/375 I plan on an 8 pound rifle and NO MUZZLE BRAKE.
The 30/375 will use at least 10 less grains of powder and hit a medium-high velocity for bullet weight, like 3000 with a 200 gr bullet (I'm guessing and hoping here but don't see why not). Do you really need to shoot a 200 gr bullet 100 fps faster?
Essentially it is a beltless 300 win mag Magnum, what could be better than that?
