Re: Pick one
The 300 Rum is too much powder for a 30 cal. The 338 can use that space.
But as Dash 6 says, if you are going to take that much recoil, you really should have a heavier larger bullet, like the 416 mag...that is why I have both. For hunting anything over 800 pounds and under 350 yards, I'd rather have my 416.
My 300 Rum makes an adequate 500+ yard whittail gun.
