Re: 300 win mag versus 300 remington utlra mag
The 300 RUM has more like a 200-250 FPS advantage over the 300 WM. when hunting LR or taking big game like grizzlies and elk, that means something in my book.
On the other hand, if youre priority is accuracy and you have a rifle that is doing what you want in that department, leave well enough alone. If what you really want is extra punch, change it. You never know the barrel may shoot even more accurate when the smith is done!

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
