RE: 270 WSM vs 7mm WSM vs 300 WSM vs 325 WSM vs 300 Win Mag
Ox, Not sure of your experience or collection of firearms, so don't be insulted. But "magnum" does not kill any deader than a standard cartridge. The bullet coming out of a short mag is the same as a standard cartridge (308, 30-06, 300 winmag, 300wsm). Same projectile, different brass and powder. The recoil will be tolerable, but definately there. Unless you are shooting elk at over 300 yds, there is no real advantage with the wsm's. Consider this, ammo is around $40 a box for wsm. 270, 30-06 will be $13-20 a box. 270 and 30-06 can be found at about every wal-mart, k-mart, bait shop, etc. not so with the wsm's.
