Guys, need an opinion on the advantages of the 300 wsm and 300 winmag. Thinking of buying one of the calibers don,t know which one. Have heard many people say the wsm has less recoil, but when i look up the reloading data they are very close in amount of grains of powder for the speed produced for the given bullet weight. Is this true or not. Also have read on a site that the wsm has a problem with the oal of the cartridge and bullet, it limits bullets past 180 grains because of the short magazine box an action. I don't think i want to shoot it as a single shot. Some people's opinion that the winmag has no problem with this because it is built on a long action amd that the magazine of course is longer. Have any responses please post them. I reload everything i shoot so reloading is not a problem of cost of buying either one or the other in brass, dies, etc. I was reading the latest issue of Rifle and it was dedicated to the 30 caliber. The author on the 30 mags said RCBS had listed the 25 most popular bought dies in 2009 and the 300 winmag was the most favored by a long shot and was ranked at 12th. Then the 300 wsm was ranked 22th, and the rem 300 ultra mag 25th.
