Same here. I will admit my experience with the 300 wsm
is limited. But my experience with the 300 Win. is pretty extensive with many many different rifles. I own 3 long range 300 win's right now and my son also has one.
With my limited experience with the 300 wsm I saw less velocity with 210 Bergers. Plus I was fighting to get them seated where they needed to be and still fit in the mag box and cycle. I can take a 700 rem in 300 win and load them to the lands and put them in a std magnum mag box and they will cycle.
My custom defiance 300 win with a Broughton 28" 5C is sending the 210 Berger @ 2995 fps @ 4100 ft. This is over an Oehler 35 with confirmed drops to well past 1000 yards. The rifle is a SOLID 1/2 moa gun to 1000 off a bipod.
Does anyone have a 300 WSM that will send 210gr bullets close to 3000 fps? If so I would like to hear your load and elevation. I have read many places the 300 wsm is slower than the 300 win. But it seems in this thread some say different. I would like to hear first hand from a shooter that is using both. If not I will simply rely on my own field results and forget the stuff you read that is many times simply owner pride in caliber.
