We all justify buying a new gun for one reason or other....
I say you buy two.
How bout a lightweight Sako 300WSM, you can share bullets with your big brother.
Yeah I have a nice Butler Creek neoprene sling that works great. That gun still gets heavy when you are hiking for 8 hours though.
Part of the reason I initially was considering the 300 WSM was for the very reason that I could share bullets though.
Incidentally, I use 200 grain Nosler Accubonds in my 300 RUM rounds and what I have read, they are recommending nothing bigger than 180 grain rounds in the 300 WSMs so that might not be an advantage for me.
Unfortunately I will have to go with different powder on that one as the Retumbo powder I reload my 300 RUM with isn't the best choice on the 300 WSM.
