There is one thing that everyone needs to know about the 7mm RUM. It is .004 thousandths
longer in the body and .018 longer at the neck shoulder junction.

So It requires sizing down (Bumping the shoulder) .004 thousandths before it will chamber in
the 300 RUM.

300 Rum Brass is scarce and 7mm RUM is also but it can/will be available some day.

The only other option is to buy the managed recoil ammo from Remington for $35 to $40.00
and shoot it for break in or fouling shots and end up with fire formed brass in your chamber for
very little more than the price of brass.

    I did the cheap reduced recoil route, on 2nd firings I had about a 5 % loss from split necks. maybe this is normal for this beast, but its frustrating as no virgin brass is readily available. Had high hopes for noslers high priced stuff, but who knows when they will actually get that on the market.

    Roy,

    See if you can round up some .404 Jeffery cases from RWS. I've heard that they are some of the strongest out there. Case capacity is less from what I understand, but case life is much higher.

    Oh yeah I forgot that you'd have to trun the rims down and make them "rebated". I know how you like to work at things and make them "fit", could be another project.....

    Thanks, I wouldn't have thought of that.
