A 270 WSM with 150gr factory loads will be very close to what you will feel with a 7mm Rem Mag.

If you are talking about a light weight 300 Win Mag in the light weight rifle (like T3 Lite), it can be bruttle.

I have Rem M700 BDL that has been rebarreled to 300 WBY Mag (27.5" barrel) and weighs in around 9.5 lbs, in the field huniting it is OK, on the bench shooting groups, it will wear you down and beat you up.
