Hello Folks -
We all know some lucky BGH member is going to own one of these 300 Remington Ultra Mag - or 300 RUM...
I admit now knowing anything about this cartridge, so I did some research...
It is a BEAST!
Below is a photo of a .308 WIN, 30.06, 300 Weatherby and a 300 RUM... just look at the cartridge size difference.
With recoils of the 7mm-08, 308 WIN and 30-06 - all throwing 140 - 150 grain bullets in the 10.8 to 11.9 (foot pounds? is that how these are rated), the 300 RUM is up in the low 30's if I read the chart correctly!
Throwing a 150 grain bullet at 3450 FPS, this thing is a screamer!
Here is a link to a good ballistics table:
This is a superior prize, of that there is NO DOUBT!
