Call me crazy but I think every hunter should own at least one .338 Win.

Alot of good info. I load the 168gr TSX and 165gr NBT's in the 300wsm and they shoot .6-7 moa with full power hunting loads and a little better backing off the powder charge. I have no problem shooting deer at 350-400yds with the current setup with a good rest. After sifting through the info I starting to think that the RUM is not a big enough difference to merit a new gun in that caliber, considering the reloading options that are available. I have several sub-moa deer rifle, to be honest I just have an itch for a new caliber/gun. I thought about big-bore, but my 450 Marlin does good in that respect or maybe small bore at extreme velocity. I have a yearly bonus coming up and this is the one time of year that I get something for myself, I would like to spend $1000 or less on the gun. Sorry for being long winded, but I have made too many quick decisions in the past and ended up unhappy with my purchase. I really don't NEED any more guns, but thats probably true for most of us on this forum, it's about WANT. Thanks for the input! I would like to get into longer distance shooting, but the range is limited to 300yds except for matches, i guess I just need to sign up for some classes/matches at the rifle club.

Let's see. I own a 300WSM, a 7MM STW and a 300RUM. This should be fun! I bought the 300WSM first and thought I had a long range rig. And I do, with 150gr or maybe 165gr bullets but these usually have shorter barrels. I then bought the 300RUM and knew I had the ultimate long range rifle. And I do with a range of bullets including heavier weights. This was all until Tim got me worked up about the 7MM STW. It's what I used to kill an Antelope at 550 yards last August.

If you don't need the heavier bullet I vote 7MM STW all the way. If you've got to go bigger than 160gr get a 300RUM.

The 300WSM is my baby and when I go after a new animal it gets the call. I LOVE it but have learned to love the STW almost as much.

Nice rifle, but too late.

I decided to go with the Remington 700 SPS in 300RUM. I shot a box of the 150gr Powerlevel I ammo, 1.5moa.
As we speak I'm working on some reloads, 165gr NBT and 130gr TSX, that will be a smokin load if it shoots good. The wind is supposed to be 20mph around here tomorrow, not good for range work. Hopefully this this sucker will dial in and make a good long range deer rifle, 300-500yds. I realize that not long range for some of yall sniper types, but it is for me. \:\)

I now have a surplus Remington 700 SPS in 300wsm that I would trade for a Rem 700 in a different caliber, small caliber or odd caliber preferred.

Funny that you would post a pic of ole BigFeet Renegade.My hunting partner and I are going to British Columbia in September for elk and mule deer.Well he calls me the other night and says hes been watchin the History Channel and they were documenting a trip by a group of guys researching sasquatches.Wonder what a full body mount on that rascal would cost.Oh yea,I reminded him that I can still outrun him.
