does anyone know if there is a such thing as a .300 STW or something of that nature?? everyone reccomended to me going with a 7 STW and i was just wondering if there was a 30 caliber version available?? i feel like a moron for asking this.
I am pretty sure some wildcater made a 30 cal by necking up a 7 STW case, or some improved version of it. God only knows what he called it. Why not check out a .300 RUM? A lot of guys on this board have them, or improved versions of them.

I agree with demar, unless your reloading or are deeply in love with the idea of owning a wildcat, go with either a 300 RUM or a 300 Weatherby. Both fullfill the performance characteristics that your looking at in the 30/8mm Remington, and both can be had in production rifles, with factory ammo to boot. But, if you really want a wildcat, I'm not one to rain on anybody's parade. Owning and reloading for something unique is more than half the fun.
I would think looking at the cases ...I have a 300 Jarret loaded with 180 that the 300 RUM would hang right with it and may even out perform..actually IMHO I really think the 300 RUM would be better less hassle fireforming and I thing just as it sits it will beat the Jarret hands down. I know a local smith in town here and he shoots a Jarret and loves it ..and tells me I"m crazy but man that 300 RUM is a BIG case
anybody really know on this particular comparison [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
