Maybe you need to work on your ability to communicate with the written word. If English is not your first language, maybe you should have put something (like your location) in the place that askes for your "location" when you signed up for the forum. Then, others would take this fact into account when answering. Punctuation, along with a coherent sentence, does count, and allows efficient conversation. As is, your posts make no sense at all.
"Shoots real good!": definition; it didn't blow-up in my face. Not everything can be fixed on an internet forum!

Re: 300 wsm

The bullet IS labeled as to which BORE it fits. .308 fits a .308 bore. 7mm or .284 fits same.

There is a range of bullets for any given caliber. .308 runs from approx. 100 gr to up to 240 grs with plenty in between.

As for names of chamberings that can get crazy. Some are based on their bore and length like a 7 x 57. Some are named by their date of use. 30-06 is 30 cal which began use in 1906.
Some are proprietary like the 300 WSM (Winchester short magnum).

Still say looking at a few reloading books will clean much of this up.

Sierra's 5th Edition reloading manual is one of the best. Lot's of history about different calibers, great reloading data....what's not to like. Best $25-30 you will spend. Have almost worn mine out.

Re: 300 wsm

guys like some of us that have been around for a long time forget that a beginner has questions that we think are silly but better to ask then try to jam a cartridge into a gun it doesnt belong in.
