Re: Ultra Mags vs Rem Mag and Win Mag

I have owned, hunted and compared a lot of them side by side. 7's and 30's big over bore cases and all. What do I shoot today after all the smoke has cleared? Well I will just say, all things considered, it is very hard to beat a 300 win with a 215 Berger at 3K fps plus. I have set up many and even the 26" rifles get 3K or very close to it.

It is a sensible killing machine and I have stacked elk, deer, antelope and bear from 50 yards to 1285 yards with it.

I am happy to be back to it even after owning all the super magnums.

Jeff

Even when presented with clearly better ballistically performing cartridges, people will still claim their 300 win mag is better. Does it do a certain thing well? Sure it does. Are there better performing cartridges out there? Sure there are. People use it as a comparison because most people have a general idea of what its capable of. But when it comes to the "fastest, flatest, new cartridge" the 300 win mag gets left in the dust. I've owned one and I enjoyed it. But I wanted something ballistically superior.
    So what do you like
