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.


There are ballistics charts that show the differences, the shorter cartridge allows for a faster burn leading to higher velocities and flatter trajectories.

To your question NO,but the same is the case with the other rounds as well. A 7 mag won't do anything an '06 won't,what will a 308 do that an 06 won't? ect ect.

For myself it came to the appeal factor,the 7 Remmie ,300Winnie made me ,same for some other new rounds,while the WSM made me


I think all of them will be around for a good while.

I agree that the 300wsm is a little overkill with the 168gr TSX, but I usually don't have a tracking problem. I may try some 130gr TSX next year. To be honest my Ruger 7x57mm with 140gr TSX's is a real deer killing machine.

I'm getting a itch for a new rifle myself. Thinking about selling my Rem Model Seven .260 and buying the Marlin .308MXLR or a rifle in the .270wsm. I'm sounding like a woman shopping for home decor or furniture. Never satisfied. \:D \:D
