Why not kick it up a notch to the 300RUM? I just can't warm up to those goofy short mags.

FWIW, I shoot 150 grain 0.308 AccuBonds from a 1:14 twist at about 3150 fps and have no problems with twist.

Re: .30-cal-Barrel-Twist-question

Hired gun, I thought about going with the 300 RUM. Here are the reasons I did not go with the 300RUM;
1. No good brass for 300RUM
2. To much recoil
3. The smaller .30cal bullets are working better out of the 300-WSM.
