I'm sitting here with a Short action Rem and a realy nice light weight stock contiplating what caliber it needs to be.
I was wondering what sort of velocity could be expected from a 300 WSM
out of a 20" barrel with say 180gr bullets.
Also how severe would the muzsel blast be on an animal of this sort.
I'm thinking about a short light weight deer/elk gun for shooting out to 400yds
I've seen a Ruger with 16" barrel and liked the way it handled but not to sure about 16" of barrel with that much powder.
Anybody out their shoot a shorter barreled 300WSM
