    Now both bullet diamters are .308 so does that mean i can use the same die for the 308. win and the 300. wsm

    Same bullet diameter but different cases. Suppose you could use neck sizing die but not full length sizing die.

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Unless your just de-capping with a generic de-capping die.
    Any RE SIZING die will NOT work. Get a cartrige specific die for sizing. You will ruin your brass and probably your die if you try the other way. Eventhough both cases use a .308 cal. bullet, thats about where the simmilarities stop. Case diameter, shoulder, case length etc. are completely different.
