    Can you shoot 300 wsm in a 300 wm rifle? I'm sure it is possible but is suggested or safe? Just wondering.

    no. they are two totally different catridges. the only thing in common they share is the caliber size. seriously doubt the 300 WSM would even chamber.

    case dimensions of the 300 WSM.
    case daimeter .555
    case OAL 2.1
    bolt face diameter .532

    case dimensions of the 300 Win. Mag.
    case diameter .475
    belt diameter .532
    case OAL 2.62
    bolt face diameter .532
