Re: 300 rcm
I guess the point is you're dealing with a cartridge that is not commonly found. If that's ok, then go for it full steam ahead. Lefty rifles are hard to come by, for sure. I'm watching for one for my daughter, actually.
And I handload for a slew of cartridges, I think 13 or 14 currently, including rounds like the 35 Whelen, 300H&H, and 264WM. Not unobtainable brass, but not easy, either.
I guess for me, I'd look to any of a range of 30 mags instead, just because there's not much the RCM's bring to the table outside what others can do with less component availability issues. Yep, same can be said about the 300H&H. I have a 300WSM, too, and that's literally a ballistic twin to the H&H round. If one just wants it, hey, go crazy with it, lol.
For a "cost effective" rifle, I personally would think twice on an RCM. Just my views on it.
