    If it is new, $810 is about the going price.
    I got mine for $790 new.
    I can't tell you anything about the 338win, but I can tell you the 300rum is fun to shoot and reload for. Although, part of me wishes I would have gotten the 338rum. I guess you can never be happy.

    I paid $760 for mine last year. You are going to want to put a brake on it if you plan on shooting a lot. It has a pretty good kick to it.

    I bought one this winter. I did not put a brake on it. My main use is target, so I mounted it in a choate ultimate sniper stock, filled the extra spaces in the stock with lead shot,(rifle weighs in at about 21lbs....shoots like a pussycat), topped it with a leupold 6.5-20 50mm long range target scope. my last set of groups I shot (have not worked up loads yet, just picked one load) were 3/4" and 1 3/4" at 400 yards with a cross wind and alot of mirage.

    I made a set of should straps for it so I carry it like a back pack rather than on 1 shoulder. BIG difference. went coyote hunting this winter on snow shoes. carried it over 2 miles...very comfy. (no coyotes though). I am currently shooting 190gr Sierra Match kings.

    I absolutely love this rig. I had initially considered the 338rum version. I just find the 300 to be more economical and it does what I want it to do.

    but...can't tell you how it shoots with the original stock...never tried it. I have considered putting a brake on it but I am afraid to mess up the accuracy. maybe someday.

    I have owned a .338 win bag and have a 300 RUM in weather warrior sak Savage, Rum
    more devastating than the .338 win bag.I even have a 300 RUM necked to .338 which is a super performe, so do five of my friends
    this round is worth considering or an improved version!! Not to throw off on the .338 win but it is a very old cartridge
    and the RUM's will out shine it with ease
    espically one with a little free bore and a
    30" barrrel!!!
