How does recoil compare between the 300 wsm and the 300 Win Mag?

Re: 300 WSM Any comments?

Luke,
Just noticably less than the 300WM.

Steel plate can be purchased at a local steel yard for cheap or free, just ask if they have any remnants and tell them what your using them for and you'd be surprized, they would probably just give you what you need, some will even cut it in the shear for you if you want killzone size pieces too. They get rid of some huge pieces from projects they just can't use up. Ask for some T1-steel remnants if they have them, they probably won't cut them in the shear for you because they are harder than mild steel, but you can shoot them closer without punching holes through them as easily. I've found them to be about twice as good. A 308 win at 2600 fps with 165 SGK's at 100 yards will not punch a hole in them, a 300 WSM will. Figure the impact velocity of the 308 at 100 yards and use this as a maximum impact velocity for others at greater distances, that is what I do.

Re: 300 WSM Any comments?

does winchester factory ammo really have superior ballistics????? i used the realguns.com ballistics progam for these calculations. note at 1000yds, there is a drop of 250" vs. 22" for winchester ammo (according to an earlier post).

i just looked at the earlier post. he is saying "Distance Drop MOA". what ever that means, it must not be the same as "path - in".

so, what does "Distance Drop MOA" mean????


Ballistic Coefficient: .435 Bullet Diameter: .308 in. Bullet Weight: 150 grains
Muzzle Velocity: 3350 ft./sec. Sight Height: 1.5 in. Zero Distance: 100 yds.
Cross Wind: 0 mph Firing Angle: 0 degrees

Indices Range
Range - yds. 0 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 800 900 1000
Velocity - ft./sec. 3350 3114 2891 2678 2475 2281 2097 1922 1756 1600 1459
Energy - ft.-lbs. 3737 3229 2784 2389 2040 1733 1464 1230 1027 853 709
Path - in. -1.5 0.0 -2.1 -8.3 -19.5 -36.3 -59.8 -91.2 -132.0 -184.2 -250.0
