Ruger       
Compact
Magnum
NEW for 2008
The idea of shortening a
magnum case, and increasing
performance by optimizing a
case's geometry to deliver more
power with less powder began
with Lazzeroni back in the early
1990's.
Winchester introduced  seven
different
Short and Super Short
Magnums, (3 W
SSM & 4 WSM)  
in the early 2000's .
Now Ruger and Hornady have
developed two "Proprietary"
Short Magnums, the 300 RCM
and  338 RCM,
RCM for
Ruger Compact Magnum.
200 grain projectile = 2,850 FPS
225 grain projectile = 2,710 FPS
and slightly beats out the
338 Winchester Magnum
$ 3.75 per
Cartridge
