I am probably going to order my 300wsm tomorrow. I do load my own stuff and my research tell me this is a great round. My 308 deal fell thru so this will be its replacement. Browning abolt.

I have two 300 win mags so I vote for that caliber. A 180 grain Ballistic Tip or Accubond is my choice of bullet.

7mm is not too much gun but a 300 is in my opinion. I have shot a few with a 300 and a lot with a 7mm.

No such thing as too much gun
At some point in your life you have to relize just how old you are.
But only when your body feels that old.

Both are unnecessarily powerful for a deer but if I had to choose, I'd go with the smaller of the two and take the 7mm. Most guys that have either one of these would shoot better if they had a smaller rifle that kicked less. And just because you can stand it and shoot a whole box of ammo at a sitting doesn't mean you are shooting with the best accuracy you are capable of.

I have a 460 Weatherby that shoots 500gr bullets at 2,600+fps and I can certainly shoot it a bunch in an afternoon but I can definitely shoot a lot better with my 25-06! \:\)
