Re: 300 WSM vs 300 Win Mag

What I find interesting is that the " new comer " 300wsm has to be defended .

The 300 winmag , belt and all , is still ahead in my book .

Re: 300 WSM vs 300 Win Mag

The win mag will only out perform the WSM with 200 and larger bullets and then it is close. Premium bullets in the 180 gr class really eliminate any real difference.

For example you can run a win mag with a 210 berger to little over 3150 but close to vaporizing bullets if the bore is rough and accuracy falls off normally.

You can run a WSM with a 210 the same length barrel and get 2975-3050 with no bullet issues and accuracy fall off.

Be glad you got the WSM and do not let anyone tell you different. I have 3, two for comp and one for hunting.

I have shot a 5 shot 18" group at 1680 yards with my WSM.
