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

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! \:\)
