Product Overview On 300 rum
Most hunters would probably agree that 300 rum, on paper anyway, the .300 Remington Ultra Magnum looks like a fantastic hunting cartridge. Capable of launching a heavy bullet at a very fast velocity, the .300 Ultra Mag delivers extremely flat trajectories and hard hitting performance at long range. The .300 RUM undoubtedly deserves the “Ultra Magnum” moniker, but that incredible performance does come at a price.
The magnum era in North America kicked off with the introduction of the 7mm Remington Magnum and .300 Winchester Magnum in the early 1960s. Other magnum cartridges like the 30-378 Weatherby Magnum and 300 WSM have come along since then, giving hunters looking for serious magnum performance no shortage of options to choose from.
