.35-300rum

Was at the local gun shop today and they had a remington 700 in that caliber, 26" barrel with leupold vxii on it for $799. I held it for quite some time and eventually put it back. Anyone know anything about this wildcat? Should I have purchased it? I assume ammo would have to be custom made...?

Re: .35-300rum

American Hunter had an article on elk cartridges a year or so ago. This cartridge was mentioned. I don't remember which author wrote the article, but it was one of their regulars. I think it was developed by Mark Bansner, but I can't say for sure.

I can't see it doing anything a 300 rum can't do, unless your looking for more recoil, more drop, and less quality in bullet selection.

Actually, the .35-.300 RUM (.358 UMT) isn't even in the same playground as the .300 RUM.

The .358 UMT is a SERIOUS mudhole stomper. It retains more ft/lbs of energy at 200 yards than a .338 Win Mag and shoots flatter than either the .300 Win Mag or the 7mm Rem Mag. No, the bullet selection in .35 cal is not what it is in .30 cal. Nor would girls, children or the recoil-sensitive probably have much fun shooting it. But it would make a DANDY round for critters with big bodies, big bones and or bad attitudes.

Not Bansner.

It was developed by Bryce Towsley.

Yes. That's correct. I just had a brain cramp and couldn't remember.

It's a serious cartridge. At both ends!

Re: .35-300rum

It would be neat to play with if your a serious reloader. Most of my rifles are wildcats and I think nothing of it but don't get one if you don't reload.

It's one of the rounds that'll SURELY get a feller off the porch and running with the big dogs.

If you want or need that punch at the front end, you're gonna have to put up with some punch at the back end.

There is no free lunch.
