Re: Is the 300 wsm case somewhat magical?

Most 1000 yard shooters are shooting 210 Bergers at 2850 to 2950 with 300wsm. A lot of the 1000 yard records and aggregates were won with wsm. They are very accurate and effecient. Three records were shot at Williamsport, last season with 300 wsm. Almost nobody shoots the 300 winchester anymore. I believe most of the aggregates and records at Montana, Virginia, and North Carolina were won with 300 wsms, the last two years. For the number of 300 wsms versus the 6.5 284, 6mm dashers, 300 Weatherbys, and 308 Baer versions on the line, they are really winning.

Re: Is the 300 wsm case somewhat magical?

The 3351 with RL17 and the 168 TTSX is out of a 26" barrel over an Oehler 35 with 4 ft spacing of screens in my gun. The gun has an extended Wyatts box but not really needed with the 168 TTSX.

It is quite easy to run 2850-2950 with 210s and 28-30 inch barrels in the WSM and Win Mag. Both shoot equally well in the accuracy dept.

We have guys running 210s in the WSM at 3050 and some running the 210s in a Win Mag out to 3100.

However, the Win Mag is losing favor among the 1k BR shooters for one main reason, and that is the 2-3x barrel life advantage of the WSM. Why, I cannot say, but it is a fact in gun after gun.

The 2008 IBS 1000 yard shooter of the year and Nationals champ is Danny Brooks who has been a long time Win Mag shooter. However, he won this year with a WSM that had 4000 rounds at the Nationals. No Win Mag has ever done that with half that many rounds in the tube.
