Since the RUM case is somewhat smaller than the .378 Wby case, you should expect somewhat less velocity (100-200 fps) in either the 416 or 458 version. Using a longer barrel will maximize the potential for either cartridge. Cost is more a factor of who's barrel you start with and who chambers and installs it for you.
