I have another cartridge comparison for you today where we compare two very popular 30 caliber magnum rounds: the 300 Winchester Magnum and the 300 Winchester Short Magnum. Ask a couple serious big game hunters their opinion on the best .30 caliber cartridge and they’ll likely name a couple different rounds between them. Two in particular will probably appear near the top of lists though: the 300 Winchester Magnum and the 300 Winchester Short Magnum. Both are very popular rifle cartridges and there is a lot of overlap in their performance and ideal use cases, but there are some significant differences between the 300 WSM vs 300 Win Mag. Well, that’s we’ll discuss in this episode where I investigate the pros and cons of the 300 Win Mag and 300 WSM in detail so you can make an informed decision on which one will work best for your individual needs.
