It seems there are enought rifle manufacturers selling them chambered for WSM that it safe to say they will be around for awhile. It all comes down to whether or not they measure up to other rounds for accuracy and other performance measures. You may not have the variety of loads that you'll see from more "standard" calibers, like .30-06 or .300 WM, but I think they will continue to remain available, if that's what you're worried about.

Like JamesB said, the WSMs (300 and 270) outsell almost all rifles in our area now. I know I have a few buddies and neighbros that have bought new rifles in the last few years, and all were 300WSMs but 2 and those were 270WSMs. I personally would get a 7mm WSM, but thats only because I have stockpiled on .284 bulletts. The 325WSM hasn't been out long enough to sell heavily, but I would imagine it is going to be a good seller as well.

Like everyone said, the WSSMs are kinda sittin at a standstill with the bolt action crowd, but the AR crowd is eating them up. I'd still like to buy a 25WSSM to tinker with.

The 270 WSM & 300 WSM should be around for a long time. The 7mm WSM had a bad start and has fallen behind and as for the 325 WSM, it’ll take a little time before we know for sure if it stands up with the 270 & 300...

Not sure myself. I think it's too early to tell. I'm a traditionalkind of guy. I prefer my .22-250, 6mm Remington, .270 Winchester and 7mm Remington Magnum cartridges to shoot. Looking to add aRemington M700 BDL in .300 Rem Ultra Mag. soon too.[/align]

I know I bought one when they first came out and within a month there were 4 more I my family. That has alot to say for it. I really like reloading for it, it is a great round to load for and you can really get it to preform.

I agree with you, he was wanting to know about wsm family so I was sticking to the subject.I to like all the cart. you listed I have owned a .270 win since the tender age of 11. And now at 43 that is alot of years with that round. But your .300 rum is kinda stretching the traditional thing.maybe a .300 win?? Give a wsm a try you might like it.

Exactly..you may like it. Here is a 100 yd group I shot last week out of a new .300 wsm. 3 bullets that a dime will cover. Not much to NOT like
