Default RE: 270 WSM vs 7mm WSM vs 300 WSM vs 325 WSM vs 300 Win Mag

ox, out of those I would take the 270 WSM.. I found that it does not kick to bad.. But the other are definitly gonna have more recoil.. You have listed a 27 Caliber (270 WSM) a 28 Caliber (7mm WSM) 2 30 Caliber and 1 32 Caliber cartride in your mix. The Magnumns are not necessary for the game that your seeking and many of the more traditional rounds in the same caliber would do the job just fine with less recoil.. For example, The 270, the 7mm08 and the 308..

Does Anybody No how bad a 270 WSM and a 300 WSM kick??
I have both and would say they will both get your attention when pulling the trigger using good loads but there is a difference in recoil between the two being the 270 WSM has less like it should...

Then, I'd choose either one of the 300's with a good aftermarket recoil pad. Welcome to huntingnet.

Here you go, ox... http://www.chuckhawks.com/recoil_table.htm

It's a recoil energy table... and the 270 WSM and the 300 WSM are both in there. The 270 using an 8 lb rifle and shooting 150 gr. bullet at 3000 fps muzzle velocity... and the 300 using an 8.25 lb. rifle and shooting 180 gr. bullet at 2970 fps.

Bottomline, the 300 WSM for this choice of rifles and ammo is ~25% greater recoil energy than the 270 WSM.

What are you planning to hunt with this rifle?... deer?... elk?... moose?

If elk, a .300 caliber is a good choice.

Your decision should be mostly based on the largest game that you plan to hunt with this rifle.

Go for the 270 wsm it will handle anything but the big bears and is the flatest shooting.

Ireally like the .300 win mag round. It has a very flat trajectory so it's good for varied ranges. It's got pretty good punch to it and with modern bullet styles, good expansion.

Oh ok thanxs but Shatodavis do they kick??And will that 270 WSM take down elk and moose
Recoil is very subjective. The 270 WSM isn't bad IMHO, heck my boy shot it when he was a 13 yo stick figure. The 300 wsm with 200 gr. pills will rock you back. Put a Sims recoil pad on them and they tame down a lot.

Will the 270 WSM take down an elk? YES WITH OUT A DOUBT!!! especially with 150 gr bullets the 270 wsm is quite capable of killing elk. It wouldn't be my first choice though. Moose? YES, they are actually easier to take down than elk.

As others have said you can do basically the same thing with older/ non "magnum" chamberings. The 30-06 is 100 years old and still hard to top. The 270 win is with out a doubt one of the best ever. Heck, a 308 or 7mm-08 will do the job 90% of the time with considerably less recoil.

There are so many excellent chamberings to choose from. I don't think you would go wrong with either the 270 or 300 WSM's but if your still undecided. If you're looking for a deer rifle consider the 25-06. If elk and moose are on the agenda I would suggest a 7mm mag or larger... ie 300 win, 300 WSm, 338...

But i don't want somthing to small like a 270 win i shot one and i hated it and right now im shooting a 338 federal and a 30/06 and im sick of them both considering in only 13 i used a 300 win mag last year elk hunting it was a browning BAR with the thinest recoil pad and no boss and it kncoked me on my ass and that was my expierence with the 300 win mag so i was think 300 WSM or 300 win mag with BOSS and a limb saver recoil pad and then is shouldnt kick that bad
