I just pulled the trigger and ordered a Sendero 300 RUM. I have been a Weatherby man for years i own several but my primary two hunting ones are both Mark V ultralights one in 257 and one in 300. I have only ever ran Leupolds on them to but the new RUM will be wearing a Huskemaw
. I did some reasearching on the 300 RUM. I like the not quite complete custom. I am a mill wright by trade and am very expierenced on mills lathes wire edm both manual and CNC. I can take care of the trigger on the RUM but i hesitate on the brake. I am still undecided on the muzzle brake
which ever one i go with i will build the cap for it myself after the brake is installed. I am a reloader to so i am looking forward to working up loads. The thing i am not is a long range shooter compared to what i have read on here. I did kill a antelope in montana a few years ago at 598 yds with my 257 Wtby. All the deer i have killed so far have all been under the 400yd mark but i want a big mulie here in WA up high and from where i was this year hunting a 1000yd rifle (and me being able to be confident shooting it) could have paid off. I walked away from a big mulie at dusk at about 800 yds there was no way i could get within range before to dark to shoot and the next morning the mountian was coverd in fog so no mulie for me this year but hopefully this RUM will help next year. I still have late season but no mulies inthe area i hunt are open so whitetail in the farmland here i come. Any way to quit rambling I have described what i am getting for a rifle and scope my big question is which one of the brakes out there would you guys reccomend for my ultramag? Thanks i will have picks up next thursaday when my rifle gets here....
