Default 300.wsm vs. 300 rem ultra mag.

I am looking for a powerfull, flat shooting rifle that will be able to cover a variety of situations and wild game. I am a traveling madical technologist and would like to purchase a rifle that may cover a variety of wild game across the U.S. I am looking at the new 300.wsm or the 300 rem. Ultra mag which one would be the more powerfull and the flattest shooting of the two

The ultra by a good bit .. But you will also feel it on the other end ..If you hit anything in the right spot it will be just as dead with either .. Bill

The .300 RUM is the flattest of the two. It will handle anything in NA, and keep asking for more. Good luck on your purchase!!

300 RUM gets my vote

RUM is definately slatter shooting and more powerful, espeically if you reload as this cartridge has a lot of capabilites not seen in factory ammo.

I've owned and shot both. The RUM is the flatter shooter, but its recoil is considerably more than the WSM. Unless you have coastal bears on your hunt card, I'd forget the RUM and get the WSM. The 300WSM is the most popular WSM cartridge out there, and ammo is rapidly becoming available in places where it wasn't just a year ago. The RUM, while maintaining a degree of popularity, is losing market share (or so a Rem rep told me about 3 months ago).

I own two 300ultramags and for my uses they serve me well.However The ultramag offers no real advantage until the ranges approach 400 yards and then only if you are willing to spend considerabletime and money to develop and maintain the shooting skills that are necessary to accurately place bullets at 400 yards and further.Recoil is also a factor for some people.

300RUM is great if you reload and can handle it effeciently. If not the 300 wm or wsm would be a better choice. Either will allow you to hunt near anything in NA, at ranges most don't feel comfortable shooting in the first place.

300 RUM has alot more recoil than a WSM and not that big of an advantage.
