Sorry for the late update i forgot about this thread . I talked to a lady the next time i called hornady , I asked her which gauge bushing do i need she says hold a moment and comes back and tells me that I need The E .420 for my .300 remington ultra mag . I told her to go and pull one of the B .350 off the shelf she did I then asked her to look on the back of the package and look under the B section on the chart and below that it has 22-250 and other small calibers but no 300 RUM . The E section has the 300 RUM in the chart . Once we got that settled i told her to pull up the chart on the hornady website and look were they have 300 rum listed and it is listed under the b section which is wrong . she thanked me and said that they will fix the wedsite error . She then asked me for my address and said that she would send me what i needed in the mail . I told her that I would send the wrong one back to her but she said i could keep it
All in all I'm happy with how she took care of everything .
So to answer your question The correct bushing for a .300 RUM is the E .420 bushing .
I would like to mention that I used this bushing on about 9 rounds and could not get the bolt to close properly now i know why because what i thought was .003 sholder bump was not even close to bumping the sholder .
