    I bought my son a Remington 700 chambered in 300 Rem Ultra mag for his high school graduation present 16 years ago.
    Now apparently Remington stopped making ammo, and the stores around here have dried up and most say they can't get it anymore.
    Sooo any ideas ?
    could I get it rechambered, and to what.?
    I know where I can get RCBS die set for it , but you know kids, he never saved the brass.
    Do you know of any ammo company still making 300 RUM ?

    Thanks for finding that for me jedwil, I saved that to favorites. Maybe his best option would be to buy a bunch of it and the die set.
    I'm still curious about getting it rechambered, for ammo that's more available! Any thoughts?

    Yes there is plenty of it out there.

    Before i did that i would look at buds or Ky and see what they have and prices for something new.

    Whew ! I never looked, I wanted to buy him a box for Christmas and when I went shopping today nobody had any and said they couldn't get it, kinda scared me for a second :eek: It Looks like barns and Hornaday still manufacture it, No Remington
    Sometimes my paranoia runs ramped.
