Re: which 300

I am very fond of the 300 Win Mag. The long action allows use of even the larges bullets. Case capacity is a little more than the wsm and you will be hard pressed t find a chambering that has won more competitions than the 300 win.

Re: which 300

Ive had HS precision, winchester, Sako, Remington in 300wsm, have a McWhorter custom being built and just got my MG arms 300wsm. very accurate 150gr bst drop deer and antelope in their tracks, 180 gr tsx dropped my elk and 500 # bear. Love the short action, 22/23" barrels and super accurate. Going to try the 185 berger in the McWhorter rifle. Nothing wrong with 300 win mag but no reason unless you 26" barrel and a long bolt throw.

My 300 Win served me faithfully the last 10 years I lived in Wyoming. It was the perfect medicine for elk using the Swift A-Frame in 165 grs.

Re: which 300

I personally prefer the .300 Weatherby. I handload and easily get really great groups (less than minute) out to 500 yds and with 180 gr Nosler Part. right at 3300 fps mv. I have an older Stoeger commercial mauser actioned rifle that I have restocked to fit me. My son has a .300 RUM and my Wby outshoots it consistantly using less powder and getting the same ballistics. Not a big fan of the short mags enough to replace my proven Wby.

Leaving Wednesday for Wyoming to fill my elk tag on a wilderness trip to Thorofare.
