Ammo and brass is not found everywhere, it offers very little if any performance over the 7mm Rem mag and certainly is no equal to the 7mm Weatherby Magnum. The table below compares the recoil produced by two Nosler hand loads (available here and here) with ballistics roughly comparable to the 130gr loads above for those cartridges when fired from a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight rifle. Goodbye 7mm Rem. The same goes for guns: rifles chambered in 7mm Remington Magnum are extremely popular and very commonly in the United States. Taken together, these factors all maximize the case capacity of the WSM cartridges, even though their overall length of 2.86″ is still short enough to fit in a short-action rifle. I have killed elk with ,260 rem, 6.5 x 284, 270 win, 270 wsm, 7mm saum, 7mm rem mag, 300 wsm. This specific model weighs 7.25 pounds when chambered in both 325 WSM and .338 Winchester Magnum. In today’s world, better to sugar coat it than to sound like we may be mocking. Not a lot to choose from. The 270 WSM does indeed have a flatter trajectory and more resistance to wind drift than the .270 Winchester. Exactly why I went with 7mm. There’s not a darn thing wrong with the 270 WSM either though and there’s really no reason to make a switch either if you already have a good hunting rifle chambered in either cartridge that you like. i was kinda leaning towards the 7mm. Both cartridges use cases derived from the long, belted .375 H&H Magnum. As you can see, the two Federal Premium loads used the exact same 180 grain bullets fired at the same velocity. If you already have a rifle in the cartridge and don’t mind the smaller selection of factory ammo (or if you’re into handloading), the 7mm WSM will also serve you very well as a hunting cartridge. The 7mm WSM and 7mm Remington Magnum are best suited for the exact same hunting situations. 3.5 lbs. The answers to the above questions really depend on the rifle, ammunition, and shooter in question though. All that said I would pick the 7mm WSM over the 7mm rem mag. Probably not. What about accuracy of the 325 WSM vs 338 Win Mag? It also carries a tad more energy out to longer range and is capable of excellent accuracy. Ammo is cheap with lots of variety and the caliber is and will be an all time favorite. If I was in the market to get one of the two calibers, then it would be the 7 mag for me also. The table below compares the recoil produced by two Nosler hand loads (available here and here) with ballistics roughly comparable to the 140gr loads above for those cartridges when fired from a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight rifle. Just put your shot were it needs to go. October 28, 2013 The 7mm shoots .284-inch diameter bullets through bores .28-inch across, but only two use this Imperial measuring system in their titles: .280 Remington and .284 Winchester, both excellent but under-rated “standard” velocity cartridges. The .270 Winchester is one of the most popular centerfire rifle cartridges in North America and is very likely among the Top 10 (maybe Top 5) best selling rifle cartridges in the United States each year. Not surprisingly, this results in some interesting ballistic comparisons. The 270 Winchester Short Magnum very likely does gain some accuracy benefit from its shorter powder column. Both are also capable of outstanding accuracy in the right hands. Those factors result in this particular 300 WSM load having about 7% less free recoil than the .300 Win Mag. However, regardless of the firearm in question, rifles chambered in .270 Winchester can usually hold an extra round or two in the magazine since that cartridge has a slimmer case. However, their .555″ case diameter is larger than those used by the 7mm Rem Mag and .300 Win Mag (.513″) as well as the .270 Winchester (.470″). However, though the 8×68 S is relatively popular in Europe, 8mm cartridges simply aren’t very popular in North America and neither cartridge is widely used on this side of the Atlantic. Of course, this is not always the case and some rifles chambered in 7mm WSM rifles feed quite reliably, but it’s more of an issue with that cartridge that’s not as often encountered with the 7mm Rem Mag and its longer, slimmer, and more tapered case. This shouldn’t be surprising though because the 300 WSM is specifically designed to fit in a short action rifle instead of a standard length action like the larger .300 Winchester Magnum. The 7 mag my dad has packs a good punch! It probably doesn’t crack the Top 10 list, but it’s close. Maximum pressure obtained from SAAMI (p23, 24, 28, 30, 31, and 32). This specific model weighs 7.25 pounds when chambered in both 7mm WSM and 7mm Rem Mag. Is the 325 WSM capable of excellent accuracy? Copyright © 2020 Big Game Hunting Adventures LLC | All Rights Reserved. Both loads are compared when fired from a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight rifle. However, while that may well contribute somewhat to improved accuracy, there are many other factors that influence accuracy to a much larger degree. Both are also capable of outstanding accuracy in the right hands. Hunters who look hard enough can probably find what they need, but it can be challenging sometimes. Additionally, while neither cartridge has a belt, the .270 Winchester uses a traditional rimless design while the 270 WSM has a rebated rim. My brother killed a buck this year with his 7mm Rem Mag at 534 yards. In this article, I’m going to do a detailed analysis of the 270, 7mm, 300, and 325 Winchester Short Magnum cartridges and compare them to the .270 Winchester, the 7mm Remington Magnum, the .300 Winchester Magnum, and the .338 Winchester Magnum in an effort to answer the above questions and parse out the their true strengths and weaknesses so you can make an informed decision regarding which one will work best for you. Please note, the following information reflects the estimated average ballistics for each caliber and does not … However, though the .300 Win Mag (like the 7mm Rem Mag) is derived from the .375 H&H Magnum and uses a fatter case than cartridges like the .270 and .30-06, the 300 WSM still has a much fatter case with less taper and a steeper shoulder angle (35 degrees vs 25 degrees). If you prefer a shorter, potentially lighter rifle, that’s slightly faster cycling and easier to carry, but still has magnum performance, then go with the 300 WSM. I've only shot one deer but that was with the .270WSM from 275 yards.My brother has shot alot more deer than I have and he uses a 7mm Rem Mag.Last year he shot a doe from 310 yards with his.I would go with the 7Mag since the ammo is alot easier to find.Both will kill a deer dead as a doornail though. Cartridge (Wb@MV) Rifle Weight: Recoil energy: Recoil velocity.17 HMR (17 at 2550) 7.5: 0.2: n/a.17 Hornet (20 at 3650) 8.5: 0.6: 2.0.17 Rem. However, Winchester likely made an attempt at doing just that, but since the case is optimized for the 300 WSM, they probably were not getting the desired performance with a .338″ bullet and opted for a .323″ compromise instead. While rifles chambered in both cartridges are manufactured with both 22″ and 24″ barrels, the shorter 22″ barrel length is more common with the .270 Winchester and the longer 24″ barrel is more common with the 270 WSM. Mine is sighted in at 2.5" high at 100 and stays below a 30" drop at 500 yards. Maybe more, but can't remember. I'm thinking of buying a 7mm Mag or a .270 WSM. On the other hand, the Winchester Short Magnum cartridge does not have a gigantic advantage in either category either and there’s actually a smaller difference in the ballistics of the 7mm WSM vs 7mm Rem Mag than there is with the 270 WSM vs 270 Winchester. Is it significantly more accurate than the .338 Winchester Magnum? That heavier and more aerodynamic bullet retains energy better at long range and the edge in kinetic energy grows as the distance increases. In theory, this results in improved accuracy for the shorter case. Modify the mag is easy then get a long bolt stop or just filing it to a long one. Though I like the 325 wsm, ammo availability shut the door on it for me. 14.07 fps 24.6 foot-pounds. If you already have a quality rifle that you like chambered in either cartridge though, I don’t see any compelling reason to make a switch to the other one unless you just want to. Ammo should be readily available in any Sporting Goods Store. Perhaps the most surprising comparative result was that the 150 grain .270 WSM load carries more energy downrange than either of the 7mm Rem Mag loads. Both cartridges normally use bullets in 150-230 grain range. but which would get the nod and which would you pick and why? The .300 Winchester and .300 Winchester Short Magnum are suited for very similar hunting situations, with one small caveat. The 7mm WSM is becoming a dinosaur right before our eyes. In fact, the difference in published velocity is often smaller for the 300 WSM vs 300 Win Mag than the 7mm WSM and 7mm Rem Mag. This is illustrated in the table below comparing Federal Premium and Hornady factory ammunition loaded with 180gr Trophy Bonded Tip (.500 BC) and 200gr Hornady ELD-X (.597 BC) bullets in .300 Winchester Magnum and 300 Winchester Short Magnum. Both cartridges are also well suited for hand loaders and reloading components for the .270 Winchester and 270 WSM are widely available. The .300 Winchester Magnum and 300 Winchester Short Magnum cartridges have essentially the same external ballistics. I am a fan of the WSM cartridges. Facebook. 08-06-2007, 12:56 AM. That extra velocity makes a bit of a difference in terms of wind drift and overall trajectory to be sure, but that slightly flatter trajectory is less important in this day and age of laser rangefinders, particularly if you have a scope equipped with a bullet drop compensating dial. However, the same rifle in .338 Win Mag is advertised at 7.75 pounds and 46.75″ long overall (because it has a 26″ barrel instead of a 24″ barrel like the 325 WSM rifle). However, the 325 Winchester Short Magnum doesn’t have a closely related standard length cousin that’s widely used in North America. For those reasons, the two cartridges have very similar case capacity, but the 7mm Rem Mag can hold a tiny bit more powder than the 7mm WSM. Vote: 7mm Rem Mag, 300 WSM, 300 Win Mag or 270 WSM? In fact, depending on the exact brand of factory ammo we’re talking about (like Barnes VOR-TX), the 300 WSM may have a faster published velocity. All four loads used a 200 yard zero.Just like you’d expect, there is virtually no difference between the trajectory of each cartridge. I shot a 270 for years think it's one of the best deer cartridges made.I did own a 270wsm for awhile and it performed well also.I now shoot a 7mm mag . Glad to see the WSM family got some attention. Even though you’re probably not giving up any magazine capacity due to the fat and stubby design of the 300 WSM cartridge, those same traits (along with the cartridge’s very steep shoulder angle) can sometimes present feeding problems. Like all the other Winchester Short Magnum cartridges, the 325 WSM is specifically designed to fit in a short action rifle instead of a standard length action like the larger .338 Winchester Magnum. i was also gonna take this gun along camping in the mountains for bear protection. Both rifles in this case also have a 3 round magazine as well, so there’s no advantage there with either cartridge. is beginning to assert its trajectory superiority here with a 5-inch advantage over the .270 Win. 300 wsm 180 Accubond 7mm rem mag 160 Accubond to 500 yards. In the WSM .270 fans found a short, powerful, efficient round that could be housed in compact, lightweight short-action rifles and which edged closer to 7mm Rem. Finally, while the two cartridges use the same 7mm bullets (.284″ diameter) and there is a big overlap in typical bullet weights for each cartridge, the 7mm WSM normally uses lighter bullets than the 7mm Remington Magnum. Those … By David E. Petzal. Once again, there is essentially no difference between the recoil of the two cartridges though. Twitter. Though Winchester advertises a 24″ long barrel and a 7.25 pound overall weight for each cartridge in this particular Model 70, the rifle chambered in 325 WSM is 1/2″ shorter overall. Prospects for new rifles chambered in 7mm Winchester Short Magnum are already pretty dim and it’s possible that things will also be heading that way soon with factory ammo. Using the 4 calibers you selected, I would go for the 300 win mag. 150 grain, 165 grain, 180 grain, 190 grain, 200 grain, and 220 grain bullets are the most popular.Similar to the case with the 7mm WSM vs 7mm Rem Mag, the 300 WSM and .300 Win Mag factory loads often fire the exact same bullet at virtually identical velocities. Just like with the 7mm WSM vs 7mm Rem Mag and 300 WSM vs 300 Win Mag, even though the 325 WSM uses a case with a larger diameter, the .338 Win Mag itself has a relatively large diameter case and is significantly longer. The sectional densities and ballistic coefficient are so close its a toss up between the two. However, the 8mm bullets (.323″) used by the 325 WSM (as well as the 8mm Mauser, 8mm Rem Mag, and 8×68 S) are not nearly as easy to find in the United States. wusses when it comes to recoil. Im sure someone will disagree with me but they are not even close to equal when you compare what it takes to get the velocities close to the same. However, even though the .338 Win Mag (like the 7mm Rem Mag and .300 Win Mag) is derived from the .375 H&H Magnum and uses a fatter case than cartridges like the .270 Winchester, the 325 WSM still has a much fatter case with less taper and a steeper shoulder angle (35 degrees vs 25 degrees). Felt recoil will vary from shooter to shooter and rifle to rifle, but free recoil energy is still a useful way to compare cartridges.As you can see, that particular 325 WSM load has about 83% of the free recoil energy of the .338 Win Mag load, which is a pretty major reduction in recoil. The .300 Win Mag is a bit more widely adopted, but you probably won’t have any issues finding a nice rifle chambered in 300 WSM either. WaffenlandTV 42,763 views. I'm sure not trading mine in for a 7mm, and if it ever comes time to need a new rifle it will probably be another .270 WSM. 3rd installment in my caliber vs caliber series. So, while the rifle chambered in 300 WSM is not significantly lighter, it’s a tiny bit shorter and handier. However, though Browning, Kimber, and Savage all manufactured 325 WSM rifles at one point, only Winchester currently offers current production rifles in the cartridge (the Model 70 and XPR at this point). The situation is a little different with the Winchester factory load and the 325 WSM has the edge in retained energy. Second, both cartridges use the same .277″ diameter bullets. Additionally, the .300 Winchester Magnum is a traditional belted magnum while the 300 WSM has a rebated rim and no belt.Just like with the 7mm WSM vs 7mm Rem Mag, even though the 300 WSM uses a case with a larger diameter, the .300 Win Mag also uses a relatively large diameter case itself and is significantly longer. After all, fans of the Winchester Short Magnum cartridges like to point out the benefits of the shorter and fatter powder column. Absolutely. Both cartridges are also well suited for hand loaders and reloading components for the 7mm Remington Magnum and 7mm Winchester Short Magnum are widely available. Both are also very good choices for hunting game like bighorn sheep, mountain goat, Himalayan Tahr and chamois. For instance, a current production Winchester Model 70 Sporter chambered in 325 WSM weighs about 7.25 pounds and has an overall length of 44.24″. I would say the .270 is perfectly tolerable on the bench without a brake. The modern “magnum era” began in earnest with the introduction of the 7mm Remington Magnum and .300 Winchester Magnum cartridges during the 1960s. As you can see, the two cartridges have almost identical amounts of recoil with the 270 WSM in this particular example actually having a tiny bit less free recoil energy than the .270 Winchester. At reasonable shooting ranges, there’s very little practical difference between them ballistically and both cartridges will really do a number on both species of game. Remember: we’re talking about accuracy under practical hunting conditions, not benchrest shooting where a .1″ or .2″ improvement in group size can make a big difference. Case capacities and reloading data were obtained from Chuck Hawks and Nosler (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here). with the 7mm i can find heavier loads than the wsm, which should be better, or is the 12 ga still a better choice for bears? 7mm gives you room to shoot bigger animals. Before we get started, I have an administrative note: Some of the links below are affiliate links. With this in mind, designers at Winchester Repeating Arms elected to build a line of cartridges that could fit in a short length action with the goal of achieving similar performance to popular standard length cartridges. This results in a little bit less recoil. Inside of 200 yards no advantage. With that in mind, the 325 WSM is a better choice for situations where very large and tough game like sambar deer or moose are likely to be encountered at close range. The situation is basically reversed when comparing the 220gr 325 WSM and 225gr 338 Win Mag. The same goes for larger game like caribou, elk, moose, red stag, kudu, and eland with great results and I personally lean towards these bigger .30 caliber cartridges as opposed to the .270 and 7mm cartridges previously discussed for an Africa, Canada, or New Zealand hunting safari. Versatility, flat shooting and plenty of knockdown power. Virtually every major brand of ammo is available in 7mm Rem Mag. That being said, it’s probably a little bit more expensive and, while there’s a good variety of ammo for the cartridge, the .270 Winchester usually has a bigger selection regardless of where you go. As you can see, since the loads for each cartridge used the exact same bullet and since the 270 WSM had a slight advantage (about 200-300 fps) in velocity it has a slightly flatter trajectory than the .270 Winchester that’s nearly on par with the .270 Weatherby (270 Wby). This is an incredibly small practical difference. However, the 7mm Remington Magnum has a gigantic advantage in terms of availability and variety of rifles and ammunition. Once again, the 270 WSM has a slight advantage over the .270 Winchester in this area. However, other cartridges, like the 6.5 Creedmoor and .308 Winchester (which have overall lengths of 2.825″ and 2.81″ respectively), are about a half inch shorter and will therefore fit into what’s commonly known as a “short-action” rifle. Both are wonderful for situations like hunting mule deer in Arizona or pronghorn in Wyoming. It’s also possible to find other rifles where there’s an even bigger difference in size and weight between the two cartridges. Absolutely. They’re pretty much the same thing. The 7mm Remington mag is well established but not so versatile as the .30-06. Does the difference between the two cartridges in terms of accuracy make a difference for most hunters under typical conditions? Is it significantly more accurate than the .300 Winchester Magnum? However, Winchester did produce several versions of their Model 70 chambered in the cartridge for many years. I would stick with the 7mm. Interestingly enough, a .323″ bullet diameter is exactly halfway between the .308″ bullets used by the 300 WSM and .300 Win Mag on one hand, and the .338″ bullets used by the .338 Win Mag on the other. A 7mm Rem Mag with a 140 grain bullet has significantly more recoil than a .270 WSM with a 130 grain bullet unless you use a muzzle brake. Winchester claimed these new cartridges could meet or even exceed the ballistic performance of comparable standard length cartridges like the .270 Winchester, the 7mm Remington Magnum, and .300 Winchester Magnum. For those reasons, while the .338 Win Mag can generally hold a little more powder, the two cartridges actually have similar case capacities (depending on the manufacturer of course). For all intents and purposes, there is no difference between them ballistically and both cartridges will really do a number on most species of big game. Or was the Winchester Short Magnum line of cartridges just a scheme by Winchester to sell new rifles that’s cleverly disguised by a bunch of marketing hype? what seems to be the most favourite of these 2 mags? The 270 WSM is relatively popular itself (probably the second most popular Winchester Short Magnum cartridge behind the 300 WSM), but it can’t hold a candle to the .270 Winchester in terms of overall availability. Make sure you subscribe to The Big Game Hunting Podcast and follow The Big Game Hunting Blog on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. That’s not meant to be a knock on the Winchester Short Magnum line either. It’s just that it doesn’t offer a significant improvement in power over the 325 WSM at close range, but still has more recoil. Below you can see the differences between the 325 Winchester Magnum and the .338 Winchester Short Magnum in terms of external dimensions. Remember: we’re talking about accuracy under practical hunting conditions, not benchrest shooting where a tiny improvement in group size can make a big difference. All told, both are wonderful cartridges for hunting some of the larger species of North American big game or African plains game. They rounded out the lineup with the 325 Winchester Short Magnum in 2005. Lightweight handy rifles giving magnum performance should have become more popular. Is this really the case? As fans of the Winchester Short Magnum cartridges like to point out, the 325 Winchester Short Magnum likely does gain some accuracy benefit from its shorter powder column. That said, while the 325 WSM is quite popular in some circles, it is not nearly as widely used and cannot hold a candle to the .338 Win Mag in that area. The 7mm WSM and 7mm Remington Magnum are best suited for the exact same hunting situations. Plus, the .270 WSM could poach from an already extensive lineup of .277 bullets designed for the .270 Win. When you consider the fact that the 270 WSM has significantly more case capacity than the older .270 Winchester and that both cartridges have the same maximum SAAMI pressure, it shouldn’t be surprising that the 270 WSM is actually capable of shooting the same weight bullet at a higher velocity than the .270 Winchester. I personally prefer the .300 Win Mag, but you should also know that my affinity for that cartridge is due in part to my preference for Ruger rifles (which are not currently manufactured in any WSM cartridge). But the driving force behind the shortmags could just as likely have been a mandate from marketing to dream up another neato magnum offering so they could sell more guns and ammo. Am thinking about keeping my .270, but am considering adding the 7mm WSM, mostly for longer shots in western mtns for Elk. I am happy with my decision. This is illustrated in the table below comparing Nosler Trophy Grade and Winchester Power Max Bonded factory ammunition loaded with 200gr AccuBond (.450 BC) and 220gr (.403 BC) Bonded Rapid Expansion Hollow Point bullets in 325 Winchester Short Magnum and 225gr (.550) AccuBond and 200gr Bonded Rapid Expansion Hollow Point (.323 BC) bullets in .338 Winchester Magnum. Both cartridges are also well suited for hand loaders and reloading components for the .300 Win Mag and 300 WSM are widely available. Please note, the following information reflects the estimated average ballistics for each caliber and does not pertain to a particular manufact With that in mind, you’re probably not giving up any potential magazine space by choosing a rifle chambered in 300 WSM with a 3 round magazine. 300 Win. Lv 7. The same goes for guns: rifles chambered in .270 Winchester are among the most commonly produced centerfire rifles in the United States. Both cartridges also offer a substantial increase in power, both in terms of bullet frontal surface area and kinetic energy, over the 300 Magnums as well. This helps support the blog and allows me to continue to create free content that’s useful to hunters like yourself. While there is a big overlap in bullet weights the 325 WSM and .338 Win Mag can use (both cartridges are commonly loaded with bullets in the 180 grain to 250 grain range), the .338 Win Mag generally leans a little heavier than the 325 WSM. This is an incredibly small practical difference. As you can probably guess, there is very little difference in the trajectories in the two cartridges. The .270 Win has a relatively flat trajectory itself, but the 270 WSM had a small, but definite advantage in this area. 0 0. The .270 Winchester and 270 WSM (along with the .270 Weatherby and the 6.8 SPC) use the same .277″ diameter bullets. The following ammunition cartridge ballistics information and chart can be used to approximately compare .270 WSM Winchester Short Magnum vs 7mm-08 Remington ammo rounds. is i worth my time to get a 7mm wsm, i am looking at getting a browning X-bolt for hunting elk in either 7mm rem mag or 7mm wsm, the rem mag has 26 inch barrel and the wsm has 23 inch barrel would that make any difference, and i noticed that there is not as many factory loads for the wsm, but i have found a few that i know will work, and i plan on learning how to reload. Toss up between the two calibers. However, the 270 WSM uses a heavier rifle and the .270 Winchester gets a slight edge when both are used in the same weight rifle. The table below compares the recoil produced by two Nosler hand loads (available here and here) that essentially duplicate the AccuBond loads described above. Proponents of the WSM cartridges also argue that this results in a shorter and wider powder column that’s more quickly ignited by the primer and burns more evenly than a comparable amount of powder in a longer and more narrow column. After all, the .300 Win Mag is capable of excellent accuracy itself and is generally very highly regarded in that area as well. By and large, the 270 WSM, 7mm WSM, 300 WSM, and 325 WSM are all capable of excellent accuracy and essentially duplicate the performance of comparable standard length cartridges while fitting in a short action. The chart below compares how much a 10 mile per hour crosswind impacts those same four loads out to 500 yards.Once again, the results are mixed. The buck I killed with my 7mm-08 at 541 yards was just as dead. However, don’t underestimate the importance of the greater variety, wider availability, and lower overall cost of .270 Winchester rifles and ammunition. This specific model weighs 7.25 pounds when chambered in both 300 WSM and .300 Winchester Magnum. However, while those that may well contribute to better accuracy, there are many other factors that influence accuracy to a much larger degree. Let me know if you have any questions or requests. That’s a pretty major step down in recoil, especially when you take into account that you’re getting almost the same amount of performance out to 200-300 yards. Indeed, the 6.5 Remington Magnum, the .350 Remington Magnum, and the line of proprietary Lazzeroni cartridges all came on the scene before the WSM line, but none really caught fire for various reasons. I used the Hornady Ballistic calculator and ShootersCalculator.com to compare trajectory, wind drift, and recoil for the cartridges. The generally better feeding and overall reliability of most .270 Win rifles is a big plus as well. Which is sort of an explanation of why I have the .300.
