I'm with Ruger - get the .300 barrel. Many more bullet weight choices available.

I've never understood that either, but since I don't buy anybody's rifle on here, to each his own. I don't need a 45/70 to kill a deer either but I use it anyway.

I usually take my Ar-15 and Rem 700 in 300wsm when I go on deer hunting trips, why you might ask. The AR is very accurate which is good, but does not leave a good blood trail when making behind the shoulder shots, I prefer neck shots when possible. The 300wsm is a Tank and destroys everything in its path, not much tracking, if any. The AR is my open area gun and the 300wsm is for thick woods hunting.

I've had a couple of .300's W.M and WSM's,they are great for going out west but if your gonna do most of your hunting here they are overkill. When I hunt the long stuff here I use my 270WSM or the 25-06. NOw if we evr get an Elk season here(which I can't see happening in my lifetime) yep the 300 will be out of the safe again.

I've never had to follow a blood trail when I've shot a deer with my 300 win mag. All of them have dropped in there tracks. Most of them were hit right behind the shoulder. Now with the 270 I had I had to follow a few blood trails.

Personally, I love my .270 A-Bolt and feel no need for anything larger. I've been dreaming of a light-weight Encore in something like a .260 or 25-06 for a light kicking deer/yote rifle.

Also the single shot negates many of the advantages of the short magnums, since there's no "action" in the single shot.

No, not a good idea...Not enuff for deer and too much for yotes........
