Re: 300 wsm throat length
My son bought a Tikka 300WSM and I bought a Sako Finnlite 300WSM they both have a huge jump to the lands and neither shoot worth s##t. The Tikka will shoot quite well if you get close to the lands but then you cannot feed from the magazine!

I believe what Sako/Tikka is doing is using a 30 cal. barrel made for another caliber with a longer case and just reaming it to 300WSM and leaving the free bore that would not be there if it was reamed to say 300WM. I am going to throw a bunch more money at this after hunting season and rebarrel.
