That's just my personal opinion and if you're dead set on the 300 Ultramag it does offer advantages but you'll find the ammo is not near as widely available as the 300 Win Mag.
well i shoot a 338 win mag right now so i dont think recoil will be a problem but im just looking for a rifle that will push em out 700-800 yards. i use to have a 300 win mag but i sold it to buy the 338 because i couldnt get the distance i was looking for.

If you want something with a little more range than the 338 wm. Look up the 338 Edge it is a 300 RUM necked up to 338. Gives performance of a 338 Laupa Mag with out all the cost.
