WSMs shine with bullets in the lighter end of their LA counterparts niche. My .300 WSM was great with 150-168 gr bullets but started running out of steam with 180 and above where the WinMag counterpart shines.

The beauty of the WSMs has always been in being able to get the WinMag performance in short action rifles that are a joy to carry afield like the Kimber Montana models.

The short magnums are a dying breed.If you get one,stock up on ammo,and brass.

The SUPER short magnums (WSSM) are a dead breed. The 7mm WSM hasn't really caught on. The 270 WSM and 300 WSM are quite popular.

Agreed. I know some guys with the 270 and 300 WSM, but not much of the others. Personal opinion, the regular 270win, 300WM, and 7mm RM are still the standards in those calibers. Ammunition will always be available for them, and they perform ballistically in a way that doesn't require a short mag. But hey, if we all had a choice we'd have a gun in every caliber, right? hahahaha So if you want one, get it.

While it's not a round you'll likely find in Walmarts the .300 and .270 WSM have a growing hardcore following and ammo is plentyful and pricewise in line with other rounds in their class. My old Montana was an absolute sweet shooting gun and even in it's ultralight configuration not a tough gun to handle. I sold it because I just have too many overlapping purposed guns and I have a Remington Custom Shop AWR 700 in .300 WinMag so that one won the slot in the gun safe. But of all the guns I've sold I probably miss that one the most.

i had a howa 1500 in .270 wsm. i never noticed a big difference between it and my friends regular .270 other than mine kicked alot harder... ill attribute that to the difference in stocks though mine was synthetic and around 2lbs lighter than his though. the main reason i got rid of it was that it was costing me almost 45 per box of 20 and it was nearly impossible to find ammo.
