    Unless its a 98 of modern manufacture, I shy away from the RUMs.

    As far as other cartridges to consider for fox, seal & deer I'd suggest any of the 06 family of cases(270, 280, 6.5-06, 25-06)

    Maximum effective range? somewhere in the vicinity of 2000 yds or so... or as far as you can accurately place your bullet, whichever is less.

    i think the better question is how for do you want to shoot? i think that any of the rum's should do good out to 750-850 but past that 338 should do better. you should look at the 338 edge that would be my choise for a hard hitter in a rum case. good luck
