Who here likes the 300 and what are your experience with it versus the 7mm when it comes to killing game?
Thanks a lot
I prefer the 7 WSM because it is in a niche buy it's self (Short and powerful and for deer
size game a really good bullet selection) .
To get the same performance with the 300 WSM you have to load hard with larger bullets
and even then trajectory is not as good.
The 300 is better suited for larger game at close distances . For longer distances there are
a lot of 30 mags that will out perform the 300 WSM. It is a great cartridge but has its limits
like all cartriges.
The 7 WSM has less recoil,flatter trajectory, and a better selection of bullets with high Ballistic
coefficients in the 120 to 160grain bullets.
So my choice was/is the 7WSM . but if that is what you want "Get It".
The 7 WSM is the balistic equivalent of the 7 Rem Mag in a short case and will kill well beyond
Just my opinion
