    Long Range Hunting, .300 Win Mag vs .300 WSM

    Yeah I know, again the old question, Like Chevy vs Ford..

    All I wan't to know is which one has better accuracy at long range. (1100+ yd)

    Prices, avaiability, handloading etc, are not problems or factors in this question. It's all about accuracy.

    (Are there any .300 Magnum rounds better for long range accuracy than those I meant?)

    Considering that both of those cartridges can reach one mile with accuracy, at hunting ranges I don't think you will find a difference big enough to make a difference

    .223 Howa 1500 w/24" heavy varmint barrel

    There is not enough difference to make any useful difference in a hunting situation.

    Although you can probably get a few more reload cycles out of WSM brass than WM brass due to the lack of belt.
