Anybody have any experience with this caliber? What is the advantage over a 300 Win Mag or is there?

the significant difference one is one is tried and true and i am afraid the wsm once the new wears off will be one of those that ammo starts fading away
they will both blow a hole through a deer that a softball will fit in
if there is any real difference in perceived recoil it is minor

I had a Winchester Model 70 classic stainless that I really liked but had a 30-06 already that my parents bought when I was younger so I sold it. Didn't see the need for 2 at the time. I really liked it though. Never owned a 300 mag for comparison.
