    Hello friends, I know I going to say I'm crazy. You know that I bought a Weatherby Vanguard in 300 Weatherby but I soon sold it, first because 24 inch barrel for firing the cartridge did not convince me then is because I wanted to buy a shotgun skeet.

    But now again I'm saving for a long-range rifle, and I thought about buying a rifle cartridge 300 RUM (Remington Ultra Magnum), which makes me doubt it is the rifle that I will choose, so I ask advice:

    Remington 700 BDL-

    -Remington SPS

    -Remington Sendero

    I await your answers. Thank you,

    Ovny.

    I want to say the .300 Win Mag, you don't need all that extra recoil. I think you can only buy the Sendero used, they discontinued the line...as far as I know. Nothing wrong with the Remington BDL, they have made enough of them. I still like control feed guns.

    Surely with the 300 Winchester would have enough, but I want some more, so opt for Weatherby and now I have the opportunity to choose again because I decided to try the RUM.

    Thanks for everything,

    モscar.

    Actually own a Sendero 7mm Ultra Mag, it's unbelievable flat. I don't use it much but it has the potential to reach out to 500 yards without much adjustments.

    I used a Sendero 300RUM for my last hunt with my grandaughter (14 at the time,) in Botswana we both shot it, she loved it with reduced loads, and shoots it great. I've had 300 win mags that just kicked the snot out of me. love the 300 RUM round, I have since put myself and the Sendero on a diet for the next hunt, the rifle is still a tack driver.

    Would not surprise me, Berger should work great at long range.

    I had been thinking in the Lapua 338,but for the use I am going to give even the 300 RUM is more than enough. 7 RUM catches my attention,but I do not know the availability of the cartridge in my country. I keep saving and decide when the time comes. The 300 RUM is still my first choice.

    Finally I bought an old Spanish manufacturing rifle with 24 "barrel length mark Santa Barbara 300 Winchester Magnum cartridge. Does it seem a good choice?. I have also put a visor Burris Fullfield II 3-9x40, what do you think this team to hunt in stalking mode with shots of 200-400 meters?

    Oscar.

    I don't know anything about the rifle. But the caliber for those ranges will be just fine. Go with a 180gr bullet and you'll be getting 3000fps or close to it. You can sight the gun to be zero'd at 300 and you won't have to adjust much for 400 yards.

    Go to a 165gr bullet and you'll be that much flatter. If the gun likes 168gr TTSX, you'll have a decent ballistic coefficient and a great long range shooter. Nosler Accubonds would be a good choice too.

    Thank you very much for your reply. The rifle is a conventional weapon system Mauser 98 deportivizado, passive ejector. A sober weapon.
