Either one will work, it just depends on what your goals are distance-wise. If you are looking to be able to take down an elk at a longer range (500+ yards) I would look into 200+ grain bullets in the 300 RUM. Not saying that the WSM can't do it, but you will have more of an advantage at long range with the RUM.
