300 RUM hands down.
So far the Remmy brass has been great, well except for the very first few lots, there where some dinged ones and messed shoulders, but that is long gone and it was only the first couple months that loaded ammo was on the market.

In the near future we are going to offer a match load geared mostly for the Tactical shooters, but it will work great for anything else if you do not handload.
It will have either a 200 or 220 GR SMK in it.

Re: Sendero 300WBY or Ultra??

At first the rum cases were not very consistent, the last few runs I have checked are much better, guess they had to get screwed down. Some friends of mine have several 300rum's all shoot sub-min but the most of them have Pac/Nor or Hart barrels.
The Wby round is a fine round and can't be overlooked, at the same time it has been around a long time and accumulated a lot of fans. When the 300RUM has been around as long
see how many followers it has?

Just C,
In regards to the 30Hart as far as paper punching I would Yes most definately. As far as Hunting I would lean toward the 300RUM simply because of the Vel. Energy difference at extended ranges. Boyd's 300RUM will stay neck and neck with my 30Hart as far as accuracy. He's got the edge way out there though. I personally wouldn't want the pounding of the 300RUM at the bench in a match situation where you could end up shooting towards 30 rds. (I'm talking light rifle) I have shot the 300WBY and the 300RUM in the Sendero rifles there is a distinct difference in felt recoil brake or no brake. 30 rounds out of a 300 RUM in a match situation and you'll be stuttering for 3 days. Inside 1000yrds in any hunting situation it ain't gonna mean sqwat between the two. Ya hit an animal right with either and they're DEAD.
The only drawback if it is a drawback to the 30 Hart is the fireforming, other than that its a fine cartridge. Between the 300 wby 30Hart and the 300RUM inside 1k it really doesn't matter except for the recoil. An animal or a piece of paper isn't gonna know the difference but you will.............
As far as accuracy goes and winning matchs the 300RUM is fairly new. As more and more guys try them they'll have their share of glory with the cartridge. Just remember every dog has their day. Right now there is a lot of the 1k guys going the other way with their cartridges like the 6.5 - 284 cause they just can't figure out why that little girl keeps moppin up every week.
