Wrong. Depends on the gun. I have a Savage 110 HC 300 WM. Butt pad, weight, and muzzle break makes it feel like a 175gr 308. My buddy's 7mm Rem Mag Weatherby without those rattled my teeth.The 300wm rattles most peoples teeth. The 7RM does not. The 7rm is slightly flatter and less wind drift out to normal hunting range. Cost less to shoot, more fun and pleasant to shoot.
