RPM will make a copy of that 300G as part of an update - the filesystem needs to have enough room. RPM checks that - hopefully with 64-bit arithmetic.
Is RPM subject to ULIMIT? Does it handle it gracefully if so?
I would go ahead and make an RPM initially - just to test rpm with large files. Would the rpm work on a 32-bit system? Does it give a graceful error if not?
If the 300G rpm turns out to be impractical, you could make an RPM with a "data update" application that downloads and installs the data, verifying with sha256.
