    I beg to differ with you. I have a .300 Wby that gets 3200 with a 180 gr Nosler Partition. My son shoots a .300RUM that we hand load for and we have compared a lot of different loads on the chronograph and shooting distances up tp 500 yards. In most loads, his rum is slightly faster than my Wby, but it takes about 10 more grains of powder to do it. Ballistically they are almost identical, except with 220 grain bullets where his rum is better.

    Just my experience.

    Yeah, reloading my .300 WBY eats the powder...
