    Like any 6.5 cartridge that gets me 2700-2900 fps with a 140 berger vld. Very good performer to quite long range.

    Both calibers are capable of taking any game animal in North America, and Africa. Though the .338, would not be legal for everything in Africa....but anything we would likely hunt! memtb
    Curious- Is it safe to assume you have a muzzle break on each? I agree, those both will put a hurt'n on just about anything.

    Custom 300 RUM. It shoots .25" group consistently and I love a big bullet hitting hard. Lots of energy for the elk, putting them down quick. Running a 225 gr bullet at 3050 with 4647 ft lbs of energy out of the muzzle.

    Interesting article. I do love my custom .300 Wby (on a commercial Mauser action). One thing mentioned is reloading....my Wby's (.both .300 & .257) were the hardest calibers I have ever had to develop reloads for. Interesting is the authors bullet choice, the Nosler Partition. 180 gr Nosler partition bullets are all I use for my .300 and it shoots less that 1/2 min groups. I love it.
