Read a short article a little while ago in the latest "Rifle"
"Whats New for 2008" by Dave Scovill.

He says the popularity of the WSM's based on "...a little asking around..." the .300 leads the pack followed by the .325,.270 and 7mm WSMs.


Would have thought the 325 to be at the tail end of the pack.
So much for my thinking. \:o \:D

I love my .325, Im suprised that the 7mm hasn't caught on any better than it has. Im probably going to buy a .270wsm after Christmas.

The 270 WSM is likely the best deer round ever made!
I love mine!
My 300 WSM is a little overkill.

Can anyone actually prove that any WSM/WSSM/SAUM/whatever does a better job than a standard cartridge? I'm all about getting what you want, but is there anything that they can do that a 30/06 or a 7 Rem mag can't? I understand the shorter action/stiffer action explanations. I also would like to see how long they will last.

Don't know if it's proof or not,I've always been a die hard .270 fan but always wished I could get a .270 Weatherby just for those times when I knew I could possably have a chance at a really long range shot but the price of Weatherby brass and their guns was outta my reach. Out comes Winchester with my answer. I have shot 2 deer with my 270 wsm in the past with one shot kills I knew I couldn't have done with my standard 270 with out figuring evlavation and such. I've had the 300 and the 270 wsm's,in my mind the 270 wsm filled a hole no one else had and I hope will be around for a long time

"I have shot 2 deer with my 270 wsm in the past with one shot kills I knew I couldn't have done with my standard 270 with out figuring evlavation and such"

There's only about a 3" elevation difference between the 2 at 400 yards.

Confidence in a certain gun is one thing, but a 270 wsm won't do anything a 270 can't also do. A 200 fps advantage really isn't seen in the field.

FWIW- I've got both of them plus a 7wsm - just because I like lots of guns. Not because one is so much better than another.

I agree with ewc there is only a fraction of a difference between the two. With some very good hand loading I am confident the difference can be made up.
