Weatherby Mark V Accumark .300 Weatherby Mag. or Remington XCR 2 .300 RUM ?

G'Day all, I'm currently tossing up between these 2 rifles/calibres and would be happy to hear other opinions/experience with them. Looking at shooting Elk/Sambar out to 800 yards, with 180 gr. pills. Not concerned with recoil etc. just want a longer range rifle that will group ok at this distance without going to a custom long range rifle. Can't get hold of the Sendero down here in OZ at the moment so thats why the XCR. Happy to hear any opinions, Cheers.

300 rum; you can shoot it at start charges and it'll still keep up with roy. Brass is usually cheaper too. I don't care about belts myself, but you may and the rum isn't bothered by one. I've gotten 3300 fps with mid-loads using 180's with a couple of different powders with my rum; I don't even push it to the wall at all. I don't need to.
