Its not quite equal to a 338 but its close enough and a much less expensive. SO the Win 300 mag is my favorite long range round. I just don't have much use for it at the moment since I'm not a competition shooter and I don't shoot that far when I hunt.
while not the round I favor, there can be no doubt that the 300 Win Mag is an exceptionally capable cartridge .... if a person could only have one rifle, it would be one to consider ....it is extremely versatile and can take any critter that walks on the North American Continent and on most other Continents as well
"In his book, Kyle said, ďI used the .300 Win Mag for most of my kills. Itís an excellent all-around cartridge, whose performance allows for superb accuracy as well as stopping power. The .300 is a little heavier gun by design. It shoots like a laser. Anything from 1,000 yards and out, youíre just plain nailing it. And on closer targets, you donít have to worry about too much correction for your come-ups. You can dial in your 500 yard dope and still hit a target from 100-700 yards without worrying too much about making minute adjustments.Ē " taken from this link
