I really like my 300WSM.My bullet choice for it is a 165gr Hornady Interbond.

I have both a .270 and .300 WSM, and wouldn't trade either one. That being said, if I had an elk tag in my pack, I'd be carrying the .300 every time over the .270. Bigger critter, bigger stick!

don't let cost of ammo make your decision. if as you said you will only be hunting with it how much ammo do you plan to shoot? If all you will do is sight it in, do some practice etc. go for the rifle that you like best. Agreed that if you want an all around rifle, go for the 300 WSM. You can get ammo in many weights suitable for everything from varmints to elk.

I too would like advice and havent recieved any. Im trying to decide what rifle to buy my father to truly appreciate quality, precision and knockdown power. All we hunt with rifles are whitetail and hog. Im considering the 300 wsm, 270 wsm and a 7rem mag in a Browning A bolt Medallion or a Savage 14/114 American Classic. Open to all suggestions on calibers and brands no matter the price.

Build a 7mmstw and load for it. Fast accurate, easy to load for.
Check out the 7mm stw brotherhood thread for info on that round.
If you don't load I'd go 7rem or 300 win.

300wsm, it is truly the new 3006, but wheras the 06 is dropping off at 400 your 300wsm is still moving. You can use a 150 grain TTSX or BST for deer/antelop/sheep/goats and shoot flatter than the other calibers less the 300 RUM it is about an inch flatter but will beat the **** out of you unless you have a 12# rifle which is zero fun. the 180 grain for bear/Elk/Moose and you have it all covered. Yes its sexy to have a 257 roberts for goats, 3006 for deer, 300 for elk, but one gun, one caliber makes you a deadly dude.
