Our Assessment:   The .300 Remington Ultra Magnum, often abbreviated as .300 RUM, is a high-powered rifle cartridge developed by Remington Arms. It belongs to the family of Ultra Magnum cartridges and is designed for maximum long-range performance and power. The .300 RUM features a large cartridge case with significant powder capacity, allowing it to drive heavy bullets at extremely high velocities, resulting in excellent ballistic performance and retained energy at extended ranges. This cartridge is well-regarded for its flat trajectory and remarkable accuracy, making it a preferred choice among long-range shooters and hunters.

The .300 Remington Ultra Magnum is primarily used for hunting large game at extended distances. It is known for its impressive stopping power and ability to effectively take down big game such as elk, moose, and other large species. However, it generates substantial recoil, which can be challenging for some shooters to manage comfortably. Proper firearm handling techniques and recoil mitigation strategies are essential when using rifles chambered in .300 RUM. Ammunition for this cartridge is available in various bullet weights and styles, catering to different hunting and shooting needs, but shooters should always comply with local laws and regulations regarding firearm ownership and hunting practices when using this potent cartridge.  Please see our photos and good luck bidding!
