Should I rechamber?

I curremtly own a 300winmag. Ive been doing dome thinking and want to shot the high bc .308 bullets 200grn+. Would it be worth my money to rechamber my 300wm to a 300rum. This will be my lomgrange hunting rifle. All opinons welcome.

Thanks
Darrin

I shoot a 300RUM w/ 208 Amax over h1000. My acuracy load is just over 3000fps (not really that fast compared to some 208/210gr RUM loads). I have read more than once about 300WM with h1000 and a 208 Amax around 2900-2950. I have no experience with the 210VLD, I never loaded any of the ones I bought, my Amax shot really well; .5MOA or less if I do my part. I also don't have any experience with anything in the 200 or 240s.

A 200 +grn bullet at 3100-3200 would be a longrange hammer. I just don't know with me having a 300wm if it would be worth te money.

So shoot high BC bullets in your 300 win mag no need for a rum to shoot high BC bullets. My rifle is a 300 win mag and I shoot 200+g bullets. As do many others here on the site.

That's what I would do. The 300 win mag is a great round.

Chiming in here........

I agree w/those that say to stick w/the 300 WM. Put the money in optics/reticle and turrets. The 300 WM won't let you down......
