thanks for the info
Well it's was a little off topic... With that said; I don't think you'll go wrong with the .300 WM.... that cartridge as "walked the walk and talked the talk" for many years.
Good luck with your new rifle.

Re: which 300

Ballistically there isn't enough difference between the 300 WM & WSM to matter. The Win Mag has more factory options & the WSM allows you to save a couple ounces with a shorter action. If it's a mountain rifle, WSM makes sense, if you don't hand load there is an advantage with the WM. Which of those matters most to you?

Now if you open your comparison to the .300 Weatherby, .300 RUM & Weatherby .30-378 we could talk about major differences in ammunition availability, cost, performance, etc..
