    That is meaningless. The 300 RUM beats the 300 Weatherby. Big Deal. I will have my 300 Weatherby till the day I die. I will never have a 300 RUM as I just don't want one. My Model 70 30.06 will never leave my arsenal nor will my CZ 550 9.3x62 or Winchester Model 70 Safari Grade 375 Ruger. I've got the world of hunting covered with these 3.

    Never needed that level of power. The way I shoot the 9.3 & 375 does it all.

    Spike, I have a mate that uses a 416 Taylor on Sambar Deer. It's really mild to shoot & very effective. I started designing one to build but I changed my mind coz the 375 is so good. I frooled around witrh a few 375s including the 378 Weatherby with out a brake. The 378 is not as bad as some make out. I think some folk just repeat what they hear.
    My favorite is the 375 Dakota because the case is perfect. My current rifle is the Winchester Model 70 Safari Express 375 Ruger. This works out well with the long magazine I can load almost any 375 projectile without stealing powder space. I was going to go 26'' but went with 24". With RL17 I get an honest & easy 2900 fps with the 270gr North Fork.
    This is a real sweet rifle.

    8? Bloody hell Bart, you really need to stand in the corner for a while. Some fat chicks are fun, sometimes. But they need to know when it's time to go home.. Don't call me, I'll call you.
