Even if I had the time to reload, I wouldn't like it. I know some folks like it but it's not for me. I have helped some of my buddies reload from time to time. I like shooting their ammo, I just don't enjoy the work. Just like some guys like working on cars and others don't. I'd rather take an ass whooping than change the oil on my truck.

I have a 300 RUM but don't get to shoot it much because of the ammo price.

I love my .300 WBY...shoots great, plenty of knockdown in this continent, speed galore!
Shells are a little on the high side, but they do the job.

No contest the 300 wm. Not saying others on the list aren't good, but the win mag is by far the most succesful 300 mag cartridge. I don't see that changing anytime soon!

300 win mag. It's been doing a fine job for a long time. Ammo is easy to find if you run short and you need it now..

300 win mag just because you can walk into any shop and get ammo cheap

I vote for the 300WSM simply because thats the only 300 magnum i have had the pleasure of shooting, i am sure i would feel different (or not) if i owned and or hunted with any other of the 300's but my 300WSM is the proverbial antler assassin. working the bolt on my 300WSM for a follow-up shot is lightning fast, it seems to be much faster than a 270 winchester (long action)

I too prefer the 300 WSM. It does everything the 300 Win mag does (and more with some factory ammo) with less recoil.
