You're pretty much on! I've had 3 RUM's and theyre a great round for all out speed if thats the goal. To really get enough more speed out of a rum to make it worthwhile, you need a looong barrel. In a 24-26 barrel, a 300 Norma or SM will run just as fast, kick a lot less, and get far more barrel life, at least the SM will.Well this went a different direction then expected.
Ty for your opinion.
My issues and our debate is looking at a 300 Norma and then a 300 Run the Rum has a lot more case capacity but yet a lot of ppl are shooting really the same MV as ppl with the 300 Norma, and we were looking at pushing the big grain pills as fast and as accurate as we could in a 28” barrel but just looking around a couple forums at the loads ppl have shared it seems you get lil to no increase with the extra capacity that the RUM offers over the Norma. If we can’t push the lead faster with the extra capacity then the 300 norm seems to be a better pick! Understand the drop in returns but it seems steep.
Now I am wondering if you say both loaded in ADG brass and can handle the more psi better if u can start seeing more return on investment of powder
