They would have the same bullet selection if they both had the same space between the cartridge mouth to the available magazine length.

In a custom rifle
you can easily combine a 300 WSM with a longer magazine for shooting low drag bullets. The problem is no manufacturer offers that in a factory rifle that I'm aware of.
