Me too.... Bacardi all the way...lol
I would go with the 300 RBH (300 Norma improved) from RBROS Rifles.
Pushing 230 OTM’s over 3200 from a 26 inch proof barrel with the Lapua brass.
There are pages and pages of info about what is the best big .30 out there. Just pick the one you like and go for it. They are all so close, it's just a few clicks anyway. But, if I had the coin, I'd be calling Kirby. mtmuley
I hate to say it but I'm a Morgan Donor !!
Captain for Me !
Looks like the 300 Rum wins !!
I do understand the new heavy grainers coming out might sway you one way or the other . If I need more than the 200 or 230 gr.i just grab one of my 338's . It just makes me feel good to have the 300 gr. incase I need it !
In all honesty I prefer the Captain as well... wasn't sure it was popular in the US... Captain Morgan and I drove 10,000 river Mike's together when I was guiding on the Athabasca River
I don’t really want to go .338 I had one and thought it was overkill with a lot more recoil and not a hell of a lot more gain compared to the hot load 230 grain pills.
I wanted to go a 1:8 but apparently proof don’t do an 8 in anything longer then 20”? I can get a 28” 1:9, but will this stabilise the bigger Bullets ?
You realize that in order to generate less recoil, it would also need to generate less velocity.
Your point is partially wrong. It does have less recoil than the RUM because it has less velocity. Exactly the opposite with the 300 WM.
I understand dead is dead for sure . But since I started playing with the 338's my poor 300 ultras just set .
Here is some of my 338 family .
Not a chance. A rough rule of thumb I've found in 30 caliber Magnums is 100fps change per 10 grains of bullet weight change. 250's in your gun will be around 2,750fps or very close to it.
One of your family members needs glass.
