How well does a 300WSM work in a short barrel?
Have a NIB 300WSM Striker, and trying to decide if I should keep it? Been told a 300 WSM won't be any better than a 308 Win, because of my short barrel? I'll be getting a lot of unburned powder, and I can get the same ballistics with a standard 308 Win, using less powder. Anyone have both with same barrel lengths and can tell me if there is a difference? I do believe my barrel is a 14", with factory brake, so leaves me with a 12" barrel. If I do put on a longer barrel with no brake, how much difference will the 2" really make? Tight on budget, so if it will work as is, would prefer it that way and save funds for reloading components.
