    Red face 300 wsm

    Ok,

    After some good replys to my last thread about the 325 wsm, i will be sticking to a 300. But do many hunters in africa use the 300 wsm. I know the gun has not been around as lond as the win mag and from what i can see the ballistics are not that much different to the 300 win wag. The only bennefit is the shorter action and a little lighter. What do the african hunters think about the wsm.
    Cheers Clint

    .325 WSM is a better caliber, just not a lot of ammo floating around. 300 WSM is another great caliber, my brother has one and I love his gun.

    I can't imagine any of the PG after having been properly hit with a bullet from a .300WSM living to being thankful that they weren't hit with the same properly placed bullet from a .300WM. Go forth and hunt with confidence.
