I want something that is going to shoot a long ways and hit hard when it gets there. Is WSM going to do that?
Yes the wsm does that. However if you have your heart set on the win mag GO FOR IT! Its a great L/R caliber and cartrige. There is nothing at all wrong with the win mag. Were all kinda gun nerds, and enjoy splittin hairs
. The difference is very slim in performance, with the edge probably going to the win mag for heavy high bc bullets. You just have to put up with belted cases. Who cares, folks have been doing it successfully for years. Point is, Theres always a trade off for every gain. Its funny how wrapped up we get in the most minute details.
I love the 300 win mag. It was my favorite all time cartrige for years. It wasnt till I started handloading that I got so dang grumpy, and picky. My tastes have changed a bit, and now I favor the wsm. Strictly a personal preferance, based on what I like to load for, and use a rifle for.
A 300 win mag in a Rem Sendaro will take anything that needs taking near or far. Its a great choice, and a notoriously accurate rifle too.
Like I said we are, in all reality, splitting hairs on this issue, but its fun to discuss the finer points right down to the nitty gritty with people of like mind.
There is no clear cut winner without very defined criteria, and in this case theyre very, very close even with defined criteria.
The only proper choice as I see it is to own both
......... but Im tipping my own scales toward the wsm first. hehehehe
