Re: .300 WSM bullet choice
True, with the WSM case you can use either lg or lg mag. Ive used both Fed 210's and Fed 215mag's on my 270wsm when working up loads.
If you have a clip fed rifle I would stay away from VLD bullets and heavy long bullets strictly because youll probably run out of room to load them to thier full potential. ie; seating depth with the VLD and A-Max style bullets is FINNICKY! and those long 190+gr bullets eat up too much case capasity in the WSM case when you have to shove em way down in there to fit in the clip.
Who knows, you might get lucky and get either, or both of them to work well with a short C.O.A.L. but I doubt it .
Id opt for a 180 Accubond in this case. Easy to load, not too picky on seating depth, high B.C. and it covers wide range of velocitys/yardages and is a proven performer on a wide variety of game. If I had a clip fed rifle this is where Id start.
Dont get me wrong, I like the simplicity of a clip fed rifle, but it usually hinders you for bullet selection when working up a load.
