what? Same bullet selection for the WSM. both are 30 calibers.
the WSM will take higher pressure and gets equal if not better MV to the Win Mag. Winchester factory ballistics give the edge (not by much) to the WSM in fact. So case capacity is moot and not indicator.
Both will run neck and neck. Both will easily run 210s at 2850 to over 3000 depending on the gun, barrel and which powder.
2850-2875 is the accuracy node most 1k shooters use for the WSM BTW, but there is a higher node from 2950-3025 also.
On the WSM, MRP will give the higher velocities normally.
