Thread: .300 wsm

  1. #1

    Default .300 wsm

    Picked up a "used" Browning A-Bolt chambered in .300WSM. If someone would'nt classify it as being in mint condition, it would should be a surprise! Anyways, did'nt really need it but thought it would make a great rifle for elk, and bear.

    Which brings me to my question - is the .300 WSM enough for large bear and moose? I thought by asking this question in a website catering to Alaska sportsmen, it should bring some good input!

    As you might surmise, at this point, anyways, I have never used it or fired it. I am traditionally a .338WM shooter, and a quite avid one at that.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    I blundered into a 300WSM in my latest rifle. At first I didn't care for the chambering but took the plunge as I really liked the rifle a lot. After some shooting I've started to warm up to it quite a bit. Only downside is ammo cost is pretty high compared to some other calibers.

    I'd consider it adequate for anything the .300 Win Mag is... and that's quite a lot.
