Ha ha ha. Yah I dont even think I make enough money to afford to shoot one of them. The 300 RUM is hard on the ol pocket book for as much as I make and shoot the thing, let alone my other few rifles. Those ballistics are amazing to say the least. One day.....
Living in the bush and guiding in Alaska picking just 1 is tough but my vote to the 358 Norma mag. 225 Sierra's for sheep and caribou at 2850,280 Swift's at 2550 for bear,moose, and deer. 62" moose yesterday Swift weigh's 272 as usual.
I wanted a cartridge for about the same criteria (except the Elk part), and through years of research and shooting, I came up with the .30-338 Magnum. When I made my chioce, the WSM's were not born, but I would not change my pick. I am just getting started with this cat, but I really like it, and think it is one of the best.
Would a 358 Norma fit on a 300 RUM receiver?? I kinda like that one. WOuldn't be a barrel burner. I am going to have to decide whether I want to build off my WIn model 70 25-06 or my rem 700 LSS 300 RUM. Thanks for all the replys.
What kinda velocities with what bullets can you obtain with the 30-338 with say a 26" barrel? Would I be able to put that on my rem 700 300 RUM receiver? If I could get the 200g accubond going 2900fps, with good barrel life, I will be a happy camper. I wanted to go with the 300 WSM, but found out it wont work on my big receiver. Dang it anyways.
