Rollis’ 300 Remington Ultra Mag is going to be a log of my purchase, and use of my newest rifle project.
At the time of this writing the rifle is in lay away at a local shop. The final payment should be made at the end of May when I come home for time off as an over the road truck driver.
As the title suggest the rifle is going to be a Model 700 manufactured by Big Green, and is known as the Long Range.
The Long Range model has a Bell and Carlson M40 tactical stock which is aluminum bedded. The action is mated to a heavy contour barrel that in theory should help with producing more consistent harmonics. In this game of precision shooting consistency is a very important factor in achieving the desired effect.
The choice of caliber is many fold, the biggest being able to push 168, and 175 grain bullets well above the speed of sound without having to get into crazy levels of presser. And finding ammunition for the RUM is doable, where as the monster Weatherby cartridges can be about as easy as finding a unicorn.
Also it is just fun knowing you have big power at your fingertips.
I don’t have any photo’s of the RUM yet, so here is a photo of my current long range, tactical, extreme super ninja assault rifle.
The rifle pictured above is a Remington 700 VLS in .308 with a Bobby Hart Laminated stock. It has served well, and should continue to do so for a long time. But with this rifle pretty much set up the it will be for the foreseeable future the time to start a new project is at hand, and will be documented in this Blog.
More to come soon.
