300 Weatherby vs 300 Win Mag

I like my 300 Weatherby, and I'm a huge fan of Weatherby cartridges and rifles. The 300 Weatherby 180 grs Hornady Interlocks sell for $69.00 on the Weatherby web site, that is not a wallet breaking price. The 300 Weatherby ammo is not hard to find in the US. Yes, the animals do not notice the difference in 200-300 fps, and if that was the case we would still be hunting with smaller cartridges. I would suggest see which barrel is easily available to you and go with that. If I had a choice, I'd go with the 300 Weatherby.
 
Truthfully, I'm surprised the 300 H&H didn't come up on this post. Now, that's a sexy cartridge, and if I had a choice, I would go with the 300 H&H because of its history and it's a H&H. :LOL:

Blaser don’t offer the 300H&H.
With a bit of googling, you’ll find local gunsmiths that can make you any Blaser barrel you want.
I have a buddy that had a 300WSM long before they were available from Blaser.
He also has 220 Swift, 25-06 and 280AI barrels.
 
A Blaser R8 with 375H&H and .300H&H barrels would be something special though…. 24” semi-weights of course.

My wife shoots the semi-weight 19mm 300WM barrel on her Intuition stock pretty easily. My 375H&H and 300WM barrels are both standard 17mm contour, and I find them a pleasure to shoot. This is me shooting the 375H&H that weighs 7.75 lbs and for reference, I'm 70" and 160 lbs.
