I have a bud whos selling a sindero sf. I like the rifle but it's chambered in 300 rum. i know this round is awesome as far as ballistics and power but what babout ammo availability and cost. Anything else i should know about this round say compared to a 300win? also i can buy this rife for about half the cost of a new one. is it worth it?

I assume that you asking about ammo availiblity you dont' reload so I can tell you that the cost for factory loads will be higher than for a 300win mag.  Other than thats it being worth it to you depends on if you need/want the gun.  I dont' ever pass up a chance to buy a gun if it is a good deal.  Do you know if it was maintained good? Cleaned after each season/shooting session.  A good deal can be a bend over deal if its not going to be a shooter.  JMO

its like comparing the .30-06 to the .300win mag. the .300rum is a horse, but you can load it down if you want too.

i have a nice rcbs progressive press and a lee single stage but i never reload but atleast i have the ability to do so. it's a stainless syntheic gun so even if it wasent maintained properly it wouldent show aside for the damage done to the inside of the barrel. anything else i can look for when i go to check it out? and do you think the throat wear and the ammo cost would even affect me being i usually only shoot about a box a year?

a box a year wont cause any trouble, 100 boxes a year would though

Pyro beat me to it.  A box a year is fine. Even if it has some barrel wear a box of the Tubbs Final finish maybe able to smooth it right out if it does need some attention.

a bore scope would be a decent way to see the rifling but another way to test is see how the groups are on it.  A headspace gauge may also be handy.

It's getting harder to find his TMS and Final Finish in loaded ammo, seems like David Tubb has  slowed down making the stuff.

Before I decide to purchase another rifle, I always look at whether I have any "need" for the rifle. Now I have a tendency to define "need" loosely, ie I like the caliber or the rifle has really pretty woodgrain etc. However, in this case I just don't know why you could possibly "need" a 300 RUM. I can't think of any hunting situation that wouldn't be better suited to a different caliber and the ammunition is not very common if you don't reload. If not for hunting, it sure would make a cruel bench gun...If I am going to target shoot I want something comfortable to shoot with.

I believe repeated exposure to extremely high recoiling firearms never has any definable positive outcome and can often have some severe negative ones like developing a bad flinch. Before purchasing I would just think carefully about why you really want this particular rifle in this caliber...you might decide you would be better suited with a more practical hunting/target caliber and or a different firearm. My .02 cents

We have the same problem over here. People getting all these magnum calibres just to shoot goats and pigs.

Yeah its hard to get your hands but it is possible.  I have finally recieved a box of the 22LR loaded ammo after about a 4 month wait.  Have an old Marlin81 that needs some help and if this don't work it will be d for done!  You can get teh components pretty easy and load it yourself though .
