Has anyone seen a fan of the .300 Ultra Mag in the wild? Do they really exist?

Inquiring minds want to know why you like the .300 UM. What practical advantage is there over the other .300 magnums?

I'm under 6' tall that's why I like it. Just figured I would clear the air before someone asks.

It has legitimate uses. Most find it impractical for typical Texas whitetail hunting, but it really shines for delivering energy at extended ranges.

The problem with the RUM is controlling that energy. It's the only cartridge I will not guarantee less than MOA accuracy with on my load work ups. It's a very finicky round. I'm not a fan. I have seen several high end custom rifles shoot very with it. It likes the heavy bullets, 200+ grains.

I know one guy that uses one. He said he bought ten or fifteen years ago when the RUM cartridges where more common. He wanted more power because he lost an elk that he shot with a .270.

I've never had any interest in it because it is so much more expensive than 300 win mag and ammo choices are more limited. It is better, I just don't think it's worth it. That extra 250 fps doesn't make it an elephant rifle so I don't see the point. It's still an elk rifle.

Ran one out to 1700 yards in September. It didn't do so well less than 200 yards, but past that, it did pretty well.

My bet is it wasn't the 270's fault. confused2

That's why I don't express "opinions" and simply speak matter of factly,because FACTS just "happen" to matter.
