300 Weatherby Mag. vs. 300 Ultra Mag. vs. 300 WSM

Which of these calibers would be the better round? Mostly for sheep, deer and elk. Most shooting would be no longer that 700 yards.

Thanks,

I'd go with the .300 WSM.

Merely from the stand point of power. they are the 300 Ultra Mag, 300 Weatherby and the 300
WSM. If you have a long action the 300 Ultra Mag would be my choice.

If You want/have a short action the WSM would be the way to go.

There is nothing wrong with the 300 Weatherby eather but it is in between the WSM and
the RUM.

Ultimately the 300 rum can be loaded down to 30/06 velocities all the way up to some major
velocity and power.

The 300 WSM cannot be loaded as hot as eather the RUM or the 300 Weatherby.

Hope this Helped.

I love my .300rum but if my limit was 700yds I would consider the wsm due to the availability of better quality brass.

my choice would be the .300 Weatherby seven days a week and twice on Sunday. I know a lot of guys that went thru the Ultra mag thing, and few if any could really make it group as well as they wanted. Maybe now, but not for the first two or three years the round was out there. Still my choice would be none of the above! I'd go with a .308 Norma mag, or an 8mm Remington mag case necked down to .308 to give me something very close to a .300 Ackley; which by far is the best of all the big three hundred mags

It just depends. All three are awesome rounds in their own right. The 300 WSM will be the easiest to find ammo for. You can not go wrong with any of them.
