What rifles do you have already? What will you use it for and at what ranges? How often and how much will you shoot?

What is your intended quarry? I have owned both a 270 WSM and 300 Wsm. They are both excellent rounds. I loved the 270 WSM. My boy talked me into letting him work it off so now he owns it. He has taken whitetail and antelope with it. I wouldn't hesitate to say that it would take anything up to and including moose.

The 300 WSM was awesome as well but didn't flip up my skirt like the 270. The 7mm WSM is less popular but I would bet that its an excellent round nonetheless.

The 325 doesn't do much for me on paper I would suggest the 338 win mag instead for the larger categorie. Of course the 300 win is a tried and true campaigner. I don't think you would go wrong with any of them.

300 win mag would be my choice, never been a fan of the wsm. I would definately stay far away from the 7wsm, its days are getting short. (Unless you reload and find a very good rifle for dirt cheap)

Given the similarities in ballistics between the 300 WSM and the 300 Win Mag... and the noticeably lighter weight of the 300 WSM due to the shorter action, my choice between those two is definitely the 300 WSM... especially for a mountain rifle where weight is an important factor.

I would suggest not trying to man handle the 300WSM. I have a savage 300WSM and first day out shooting i tried to manhandle the gun and it kicked back and the scope got me right between the eyes and after that i learned real quick that its a gunthat you have to relax with.

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.
