What is the difference between the 4 as for as price of ammo and ballistics? 300rem short action, 300savage,300win, and 300rem ultramag

Just use Remingtons ballistics calculator.

Of the four you listed, the .300 Win Mag is the best bet for ammunition -- it's an established cartridge with a large following.

The .300 Rem Ultra Mag and the .300 Rem short action have yet to establish themselves (and may well be flops.)

The .300 Savage is a fine cartridge, but no one makes rifles for it any more. If you have one, learn to handload and stock up on brass.

.300 savage is in essence a short necked .308Win. Actually the .308 Win is a 300 savage with a longer case neck to better hold heavier, and thus longer bullets in a stable manner.
