As illustrated in the chart, .270 WSM Winchester Short Magnum rounds - on average - achieve a velocity of about 3240 feet per second (fps) while 7mm-08 Remington rounds travel at a velocity of 2830 fps. All RifleShooter subscribers now have digital access to their magazine content. For all intents and purposes, we can say that the two cartridges have the same ballistics. ballistics. This is not a guarantee of course and some 300 WSM rifles feed quite reliably. For instance, the 325 WSM has 99% of the energy of the .338 WSM at the muzzle, 94% at 200 yards, and 86% of the energy of the .338 Win Mag at 500 yards. The 270 WSM and 325 WSM are more of a mixed bag, but offer advantages to hunters in certain aspects as well and this is reflected in their popularity in particular segments of the hunting community as a whole. The same goes for guns: rifles chambered in .270 Winchester are among the most commonly produced centerfire rifles in the United States. However, the Winchester Short Magnum cartridges all use a much fatter case without a belt that more closely resembles the case used by the old .404 Jeffery as well as the later Winchester Super Short Magnum (WSSM) line of cartridges. This is not always the case and some 270 WSM rifles feed exceptionally reliably of course, but it’s likely more of an issue with that cartridge that’s not often encountered with the 270 and its longer, slimmer, and more tapered case. On the other hand, the majority of 7mm WSM factory loads use bullets in the 140-162 grain range and 140, 150, and 162gr bullets are pretty common. Glad to see the WSM family got some attention. At 500 yards the .270 Win. Basically, their stated goal was to give shooters and hunters all the benefits of a short action cartridge (like the .308 Winchester pictured below) with essentially the same external ballistics as comparable standard length cartridges (like the .270 Winchester cartridge in the photo below).So, how’d they do it? Both are also capable of outstanding accuracy in the right hands. Is it significantly more accurate than the .338 Winchester Magnum? While it’s certainly nice to have if possible, a the difference in a theoretical 1.25″ vs a 1.5″ group most likely won’t matter much while actually hunting at reasonable ranges. For that reason, the .338 Winchester Magnum is probably the closest comparison to the .325 WSM that’s in common use in North America. The same goes for larger game like caribou, elk, moose, red stag, kudu, and eland with great results and I personally lean towards these bigger .30 caliber cartridges as opposed to the .270 and 7mm cartridges previously discussed for an Africa, Canada, or New Zealand hunting safari. If you already have a rifle in the cartridge and don’t mind the smaller selection of factory ammo (or if you’re into handloading), the 7mm WSM will also serve you very well as a hunting cartridge. Subscriber Services. These two cartridges present an interesting case though. This specific model weighs 7.25 pounds when chambered in both 300 WSM and .300 Winchester Magnum. If you prefer a shorter, potentially lighter rifle, that’s slightly faster cycling and easier to carry, but still has magnum performance, then go with the 300 WSM. loads are typically a few cents cheaper per shot. As you can see, the two cartridges have almost identical amounts of recoil with the 270 WSM in this particular example actually having a tiny bit less free recoil energy than the .270 Winchester. Even so, I’d personally lean towards .338 Win Mag since it generally functions more reliably, shoots larger diameter bullets, and is usually a tiny bit more powerful. As a quick aside, the choice of a .323″ (8mm) bullet diameter for the 325 WSM was a pretty big surprise to the shooting industry, which was expecting Winchester to release a 338 WSM instead. But for decades only one other commercial .270 hunting cartridge was released: the .270 Wby. As you can see, the two Federal Premium loads used the exact same 180 grain bullets fired at the same velocity. It’s also possible to find other rifles where there’s an even bigger difference in size and weight between the two cartridges. However, though the 8×68 S is relatively popular in Europe, 8mm cartridges simply aren’t very popular in North America and neither cartridge is widely used on this side of the Atlantic. Theyâre pretty much the same thing. Finally, the two cartridges use the same .308″ diameter bullets and there is a big overlap in typical bullet weights for each cartridge. I think we can agree that most hunters and shooters in North America are probably familiar with the venerable .270 Winchester, 7mm Remington Magnum, .300 Winchester Magnum cartridges. Is it significantly more accurate than the .270 Winchester? Both cartridges use cases derived from the long, belted .375 H&H Magnum. All Rights Reserved. This helps support the blog and allows me to continue to create free content that’s useful to hunters like yourself. Far Zero for the WSM load and the 140 grain 7mm load is identical, while FZ of the heavy WSM load is 10 yards longer than the 160 grain 7mm. In short, this rifle and cartridge come about as close to being the mythical, all-round North American big game rig as the 270, 30-06, 7mm Rem. However, though the .300 Win Mag (like the 7mm Rem Mag) is derived from the .375 H&H Magnum and uses a fatter case than cartridges like the .270 and .30-06, the 300 WSM still has a much fatter case with less taper and a steeper shoulder angle (35 degrees vs 25 degrees). The last of these cartridges, the .325 WSM, was introduced in 2005. Just like with trajectory though, it’s a small edge due entirely to the slightly faster muzzle velocity of the Winchester Short Magnum cartridge. I'm struggling with the same issue. The .338 AccuBond load has a small, but definite advantage in wind drift at all ranges, but the 325 WSM has a bigger edge over the .338 Win Mag with the Winchester loads. It also carries a tad more energy out to longer range and is capable of excellent accuracy. Second, both cartridges use the same .277″ diameter bullets. But, even though the 300 Winchester Magnum does have a belted case (which the 300 WSM lacks), the 300 Win Mag generally has a reputation for pretty reliable feeding in most rifles. The Hornady .300 Win Mag shoots a little bit flatter due to its faster muzzle velocity, but the difference between them is so small that it’s probably not even worth considering. Like all 7mms, they can fire bullets as light as 100-grains and as heavy as 180-grains. As you can see, since the loads for each cartridge used the exact same bullet and since the 270 WSM had a slight advantage (about 200-300 fps) in velocity it has a slightly flatter trajectory than the .270 Winchester that’s nearly on par with the .270 Weatherby (270 Wby). (All further WSM introductions will be based on this case as well.) The Winchester Short Mags all undoubtedly offer at least some advantages to the shooter that, if nothing else, can potentially help improve his or her confidence and maximize his or her shooting abilities. Seventy-six years after the .270 broke cover Winchester launched the .300 WSM, and a year later in 2002 Winchester unveiled the .270 WSM. Both cartridges will work really well on whitetail and mule deer sized game out to several hundred yards. The .300 Winchester Magnum and 300 WSM (along with the .30-30 Winchester, .308 Winchester, .30-06 Springfield, .300 Remington Ultra Magnum, .300 Remington Short Action Ultra Magnum, 300 PRC, and .300 Weatherby) use the same .30 caliber bullets. Both loads are compared when fired from a Winchester Model 70 Featherweight rifle. It’s a wonderful cartridge and there are plenty of quality ammo and rifle choices for you. 145 Posts . Seventy-six years after the .270 broke cover Winchester launched the .300 WSM, and a year later in 2002 Winchester unveiled the .270 WSM. Inside of 200 yards no advantage. The WSM cases all have a .535″ rebated rim that’s compatible with a standard magnum size bolt face. Like all the other Winchester Short Magnum cartridges, the 325 WSM is specifically designed to fit in a short action rifle instead of a standard length action like the larger .338 Winchester Magnum. I guess riflemen are becoming 7mm WSM vs 7mm Rem Mag That extra velocity makes a bit of a difference in terms of wind drift and overall trajectory to be sure, but that slightly flatter trajectory is less important in this day and age of laser rangefinders, particularly if you have a scope equipped with a bullet drop compensating dial. AFAICT, they fill the same niche and produce the same down-range results with the 140 grain bullets that I'm shooting from both of them. This specific model weighs 7.25 pounds when chambered in both 325 WSM and .338 Winchester Magnum. If you’re using the two cartridges at ranges less than a quarter-mile, the trajectory difference is negligible, but the .270 WSM does have the advantage of utilizing a shorter action than the .270 Win. Additionally, while neither cartridge has a belt, the .270 Winchester uses a traditional rimless design while the 270 WSM has a rebated rim. After all, the .300 Win Mag is capable of excellent accuracy itself and is generally very highly regarded in that area as well. I personally prefer the .300 Win Mag, but you should also know that my affinity for that cartridge is due in part to my preference for Ruger rifles (which are not currently manufactured in any WSM cartridge). Prospects for new rifles chambered in 7mm Winchester Short Magnum are already pretty dim and it’s possible that things will also be heading that way soon with factory ammo. There is a decent selection of factory ammo available in the cartridge from companies like Federal, Hornady, and Winchester. Especially when hunting at shorter ranges (inside 200 yards), the 325 Winchester Short Magnum offers virtually the same performance as the .338 Win Mag, but with considerably less recoil. However, both cartridges are capable of excellent accuracy in the right hands and will get the job done under most circumstances if the shooter is up to the task. 150 grain, 165 grain, 180 grain, 190 grain, 200 grain, and 220 grain bullets are the most popular.Similar to the case with the 7mm WSM vs 7mm Rem Mag, the 300 WSM and .300 Win Mag factory loads often fire the exact same bullet at virtually identical velocities. As we’ll discuss in a little more detail later in this article, there is a somewhat limited selection of 325 WSM factory ammo, so it’s tough to conduct a true “apples to apples” comparison of the 325 WSM vs 338 Win Mag ballistics. For those reasons, sporting goods stores usually carry ammunition for both cartridges. Both rifles in this case also have a 3 round magazine, so there’s no advantage there with either cartridge. I joined a deer lease this year and I'm hunting on a pipeline. However, even though the .338 Win Mag (like the 7mm Rem Mag and .300 Win Mag) is derived from the .375 H&H Magnum and uses a fatter case than cartridges like the .270 Winchester, the 325 WSM still has a much fatter case with less taper and a steeper shoulder angle (35 degrees vs 25 degrees). That being said, it’s probably a little bit more expensive and, while there’s a good variety of ammo for the cartridge, the .270 Winchester usually has a bigger selection regardless of where you go. Thanks for your support. In addition to potentially giving up a little bit of magazine capacity due to the fat and stubby design of the 325 WSM cartridge, those same traits (along with the cartridge’s very steep shoulder angle) can sometimes present feeding problems. It’s just that it doesn’t offer a significant improvement in power over the 325 WSM at close range, but still has more recoil. Maximum pressure obtained from SAAMI (p23, 24, 28, 30, 31, and 32). Factory loads for the 7mm WSM and 7mm Rem Mag often use the exact same bullets fired at virtually the same muzzle velocity. The data used to compare the trajectory and wind drift of the cartridges was obtained from Hornady (here, here, here and here), Federal (here, here, here, here, here, and here), Nosler (here), and Winchester (here). Maybe, but probably not. Plus, the .270 WSM could poach from an already extensive lineup of .277 bullets designed for the .270 Win. It's still at the gunsmith with some final mods to the ejection port. And, if you're a 7mm fan, don't overlook the deadly 7mm-08 Remington.

This results in less recoil. Is the 7mm WSM capable of excellent accuracy? The 7mm shoots .284-inch diameter bullets through bores .28-inch across, but only two use this Imperial measuring system in their titles: .280 Remington and .284 Winchester, both excellent but under-rated âstandardâ velocity cartridges. However, the 300 WSM could have an advantage on those sort of hunts because it’s available a smaller and easier to carry rifle. with advertised prices as low as a dollar a round for quality ammunition. They’re both great cartridges and I’d personally say that the 325 WSM is the second most appealing choice out of the Winchester Short Magnum line (behind the 300WSM). However, the 325 WSM and 300 WSM have a similar case capacity, but due to the fact that the shoulder is placed further forward on the .300 Win Mag, the .338 Win Mag actually has a little less case capacity than the .300 Win Mag. Does the difference between the two cartridges in terms of accuracy make a difference for most hunters under typical conditions? For the majority of hunters, the .338 Winchester Magnum is the more practical choice. Does the difference between the two cartridges in terms of accuracy make a difference for most hunters under typical conditions? The 300 Winchester Short Magnum likely does gain some accuracy benefit from its shorter powder column. The 270 WSM is one of the few calibers that actually has a ballistic advantage over the standard caliber of its own. Virtually every major brand of ammo is available in 7mm Rem Mag. Discussion Starter â¢ #1 â¢ Nov 18, 2013. Just like with the 270 WSM vs 270 Winchester, 7mm WSM vs 7mm Rem Mag, and 300 WSM vs 300 Win Mag, the .338 Win Mag is significantly longer than the 325 WSM.

Even though you’re probably not giving up any magazine capacity due to the fat and stubby design of the 300 WSM cartridge, those same traits (along with the cartridge’s very steep shoulder angle) can sometimes present feeding problems. Looking at this Nosler reloading page for the 270 WSM, it shows you can push 150 grain accubond long range bullets with a BC if 625 at 3150 fps. While the performance of the two cartridges at reasonable hunting ranges is very similar, the logistics of getting a good rifle, quality ammunition, or even reloading components for the .388 Win Mag are so much simpler for that cartridge when compared to the 325 WSM. (Interestingly, this seems to matter minimally to buck deer. Specifically, the new 270 WSM, 7mm WSM, 300 WSM, and 325 WSM cartridges were all designed to use a very compact case that would fit in a short action rifle. First, the .270 Winchester is significantly longer. Normally you’d be right and the rifle for the standard length cartridge would be either a little longer and heavier or virtually the same size and weight. Perhaps the most surprising comparative result was that the 150 grain.270 WSM load carries more energy downrange than either of the 7mm Rem Mag loads. However, the distance from the case head to the datum line on the shoulder is longer for the 7WSM, preventing accidental chambering or firing of the .284" 7mm bullet in .270 WSM's .277" bore. I picked a bullet type and grain weight that was very similar and did a comparision on the Federal web site. lags behind the short mag by about 100 fps and the WSM carries about 150 ft.-lbs. Like its siblings, the .270 WSM has gained a steady following for a variety of reasons. Absolutely. So, while the rifle chambered in 7mm WSM is not really any lighter, it’s a tiny bit shorter and handier. ©2020 Outdoor Sportsman Group. While rifles chambered in both cartridges are manufactured with both 22″ and 24″ barrels, the shorter 22″ barrel length is more common with the .270 Winchester and the longer 24″ barrel is more common with the 270 WSM. This is very likely the single most commonly used bullet size in North America, so there’s an excellent bullet selection for both cartridges. However, as long as you can find a rifle and ammunition combination that function reliably and shoot accurately together, if using one of those cartridges improves the confidence of the shooter to a large enough degree, then by all means start hunting with a Winchester Short Magnum cartridge.

Finally, it’s also nice to have that extra round or two of ammunition in your magazine available if you end up needing it one day. Is the 270 WSM capable of excellent accuracy? more energy at that range. Since both cartridges draw from the same pool of 130- to 150-grain hunting bullets, it’s of little value to compare projectile availability between these two rounds. Both of these cartridges became popular in the shooting world because of their ballistic characteristics, especially the trajectory, and the low recoil while still can bring down medium and even larger sized game. The two cartridges (along with others like the 7mm Mauser, 7mm-08, 7mm Weatherby, 280 Remington, 280 Ackley Improved, and 7mm Remington Ultra Magnum) use the same .284″ bullets. However, the 270 WSM uses a heavier rifle and the .270 Winchester gets a slight edge when both are used in the same weight rifle. Many of the most popular centerfire rifle cartridges in the United States, like the .270 Winchester and .30-06 Springfield (both of which have an overall length 3.34″), require the use of what is commonly referred to as a “standard action” or “long-action” rifle.

With that in mind, you’re probably not giving up any potential magazine space by choosing a rifle chambered in 300 WSM with a 3 round magazine. The 325 WSM also has a slightly higher maximum SAAMI pressure than the .338 Winchester Magnum (65,000psi vs 64,000psi).Unlike all the other comparisons in this article, the 325 WSM and .338 Win Mag use different sized bullets. Is the 300 WSM capable of excellent accuracy? The 7mm Winchester Short Magnum very likely does gain some accuracy benefit from its shorter and fatter powder column. In fact, the difference in published velocity is often smaller for the 300 WSM vs 300 Win Mag than the 7mm WSM and 7mm Rem Mag. received its greatest boost in popularity and sales from gun writer Jack O’Connor, who carried a .270 around the globe. Your write ups always offer very practical and useful information. With this in mind, designers at Winchester Repeating Arms elected to build a line of cartridges that could fit in a short length action with the goal of achieving similar performance to popular standard length cartridges. Likewise, ammunition for the .270 WSM is less likely to be found on every store shelf, but it’s relatively widely available, and many sporting goods stores—even relatively small stores—often stock .270 WSM. Interestingly enough, a .323″ bullet diameter is exactly halfway between the .308″ bullets used by the 300 WSM and .300 Win Mag on one hand, and the .338″ bullets used by the .338 Win Mag on the other. 6.5 Creedmoor vs 243 Winchester Review & Comparison, 6.5 Creedmoor vs 7mm-08 Remington Review & Comparison, 6.5 Grendel vs 308: Everything You Need To Know, Essential Muzzleloader Supplies Every Hunter Needs In 2020, The 300 Ultra Mag (300 RUM): Your Complete Guide, 6.8 SPC vs 6.5 Grendel: What You Need To Know, 6.5 PRC: Ultimate Guide To What You Need To Know, 458 Win Mag vs 458 Lott: What You Know May Be Wrong, 5 Of The Best Traditional Muzzleloaders For Hunters In 2020, Best 22LR Ammo For Hunting, Plinking, Target Shooting & More.

In the WSM .270 fans found a short, powerful, efficient round that could be housed in compact, lightweight short-action rifles and which edged closer to 7mm Rem. While there is a big overlap in bullet weights the 325 WSM and .338 Win Mag can use (both cartridges are commonly loaded with bullets in the 180 grain to 250 grain range), the .338 Win Mag generally leans a little heavier than the 325 WSM. In terms of trajectory, the newer cartridge has an edge, but it’s relatively minor. I have killed elk with ,260 rem, 6.5 x 284, 270 win, 270 wsm, 7mm saum, 7mm rem mag, 300 wsm. Caliber: Bullet Weight: Overall Cartridge Length: Muzzle Velocity: Trajectory at 300 yds(100yds zero) Muzzle Energy(Ft. Felt recoil will vary from shooter to shooter and rifle to rifle, but free recoil energy is still a useful way to compare cartridges.As you can see, the two cartridges have almost identical amounts of recoil with the 7mm Rem Mag in this particular example actually having a tiny bit less free recoil energy than the 7mm WSM. Like I mentioned a minute ago, that particular 325 WSM load above has essentially the same trajectory and still has about 95% of the kinetic energy of that .338 Win Mag load. This means that it’s possible to build a short action rifle that’s a tiny bit shorter and lighter than an otherwise identical rifle with a standard length action. The verdict? At the same time, the lighter recoil and flatter trajectory of the 325 WSM give it a bit of a leg up on .338 Win Mag for hunting deer sized game where the extra power of the .338 Win Mag isn’t as useful. You can even use them both on larger game like kudu, eland, red stag, elk, and moose with great results. Ok let’s give them the benefit of the doubt and say they like availability and reliable feeding. This shouldn’t be surprising though because the 300 WSM is specifically designed to fit in a short action rifle instead of a standard length action like the larger .300 Winchester Magnum. What about accuracy of the 325 WSM vs 338 Win Mag? However, both Nosler and Winchester manufacture their Trophy Grade and Power Max Bonded lines of ammunition in both cartridges. This specific model weighs 7.25 pounds when chambered in 270 WSM and 7 pounds when chambered in .270 Winchester. Felt recoil will vary from shooter to shooter and rifle to rifle, but free recoil energy is still a useful way to compare cartridges.As you can see, that particular 325 WSM load has about 83% of the free recoil energy of the .338 Win Mag load, which is a pretty major reduction in recoil. With this load, the .270 WSM generates roughly 250 additional foot-pounds of energy over its competitor at the muzzle when both cartridges are fired from 24-inch barrels. In this cartridge comparison, we are going to take a look two cartridges, the 7mm-08 Rem and the .270 Win. Comparing the.270 with the 7mm Remington magnum is like comparing grits and white cornmeal. Is this really the case? Mag. RifleShooter Magazine editor Scott Rupp breaks down all the features of the Mossberg Patriot Predator rifle chambered in 6.5 PRC. It also carries a tad more energy out to longer range and is capable of excellent accuracy. After all, fans of the Winchester Short Magnum cartridges like to point out the benefits of the shorter and fatter powder column. Just like with the 270 WSM, this is due to the very large diameter of the 7mm WSM cases that simply take up more space in a rifle magazine than the thinner 7mm Rem Mag case. The .270 Winchester is one of the most popular centerfire rifle cartridges in North America and is very likely among the Top 10 (maybe Top 5) best selling rifle cartridges in the United States each year. The particular 300 WSM load above shoots the same weight bullet at very nearly the same muzzle velocity (over 99% as fast), but uses about 8.5% less powder. October 28, 2013 A.435 B.C.
