I can't think of a more perfect moose round than either a .300 RUM or a .300 Weatherby mag. I've never owned or fired either.

I got one as well and handload for it. My remington will shoot reduced loads ( same recoil as 30-06) inside 1/2 inch at 100 yards. Full power shoots extremely well also and is
alot of gun for deer. The power of the 300 RUM ( full power load) has more energy and speed than 300 weatherby or 300 win mag. Great caliber! ....but hang onto your hat when you shoot it. Just my .02

I thought you were from PA?
All my Vermont buddies say "wicked hard core".

Then buy me Smitty's.


I'll put you on a big moose when you get drawn in return. Just think of the guide fees you'll save.

I have a Remington SPS in 300 RUM and have harvested a Couses deer and a bull elk with it. I handload Hornady 180 grain SST's. It preformed very well on that elk at 250 yds.

I’ve had one about 10 years. These were taken with either 168 Ballistic Silvertips or some flavor of 168 Barnes X. Closest was javelina about 20 yds, farthest was the antelope running over 424 yards (the last yardage called out by my partner with a rangefinder), caribou was at 410, the 2 whitetails 366 and 347. Also taken 2 smaller buck and maybe 6 doe.

tundragriz, do you have any brothers or step brothers? If not, I'm volunteering my services. Man some of those hunts you've been on I can only dream about or read about. WOW!

Pretty cool and nice photos thanks for sharing.

Mine is one of my favorite guns to shoot, getting good results with 180AB and Retumbo. I've taken 2 buck in Michigan with it and my bear here this year.
