I sold a Winchester Model 70 .300WSM that had a synthetic stock and stainless steel barrel. It kicked a tad bit more than my model 70 30-06 but not much more. If my parents had not bought me the 06 twenty years ago I would have sold it and kept the WSM.

I have a Savage and the balistics are impressive. The recoil (to me) is between a 7mm mag and a 30-06. I got the 180 gr powerpoint and 150 nostler silver tips. Hit a big bodied 6 pt and dropped it in it's tracks with no exit wound. The shot was a diagonal from front to rear and every bit of the 3000 fps and 3000 ft/lbs of energy did the trick.
Some say that they want to see a through and through shot with out exception, otherwise they aren't going to say anything good about that round.

The 300wsm will take anything in North America and is very versital. Try reloading to reduce the cost of shells.
It may be a bit too much for some but you have to try 2 or 3 different loads and see which will shoot close enough to utilize a heavy round for big game and heavy brush and a lighter round for distance or smaller game.

enjoy.......................... \:\)

I also have a Savage 300WSM and it shoots submoa with winchester 150 ballistic tips. I used to have a 7mm mag. They both kick about the same to me. A SIMS recoil pad helped alot.

If your looking for factory loads might try Gander Mtn. Yeah there overpriced but they do have a better selection.

I can barely tell the difference between my 270 Win and my 300 WSM. The 300 is louder and kicks just a tad more and that's about it.
