Re: Your Next Rifle Will Be In Which Cartridge

30/338 Lapua improved shooting the big HATS with "adjusted" jackets. Astronomical BCs for a lead core bullet!

If Lapua comes out with RUM brass, then change it to a 300 RUM.

My choices are based on the best brass and bullets.

    Done Deal

    I just got a used Sendero 300 RUM with 20 rounds down the tube. The previous owner shot a qurter sized group @ 350 yds with factory ammo out of it and laso says it's very pleasant to shoot. Just need to get the rail base and rings now to get my NSX mounted on it.

    Wil be testing numerous bullets and loads through it to get the best combo.

    Can't Wait!!!

    Either a 300RUM or 7mmRUM. I can't decide between the 2. I guess what ever I find a deal on first...

    It's official, I just placed my order today. Remington sendero SF11 in .300 ultra. Next step is to see how it shoots.

    What, no .308 Winchester option? Anyhow that's my next one.

    Just took delivery on a full custom Edge and have a .257 barrel enroute for a 25-06AI or 25-284. Really want to build something suppressed like a .338 Whisper. Need to find out if the .338 Federal will work well sub-sonic with 300 gr. Matchkings to make it duel purpose.

    Hmmm. No .280 Ackley. No 7x57 Ackley either.

    No vote here I guess. Sorry!
