    Personally my opinion is the 300 WSM Trump's in benchrest long range.
    I am quite sure the guru's on this website are going to say I am full of it.LOL

    WSM will be the easiest to tune! But you can chamber for the SAUM and when your not satisfied spend more money and re-chamber for the WSM.

    Has anyone actually tried the 300 SAUM for BR? I'm just curious.

    guy I know shoots one at Ridgway sometimes it's not traditional BR but close.

    It shoots very very well.

    It's been tried before many times, limited on brass was what I remember hearing.

    BIGMAC does that give you a clue as to which one is used more, that's the reason we would like to get another manufacturer to make some, then the price might go down some!
    Check the prices on some of the other Magnums and tell me Norma isn't price gouging on the WSM.

    They just seem to shoot great and tune easy. I believe the capacity is about perfect for 210 and 215 bullets. Matt

    Trust me do not buy Winchester 300wsm. The case wall concentricity will vary by over .004".
    I got three hundred to sort through for a hunting rifle...never again. Ended up with 150 useable pieces. Had to lower the bar for my criteria for acceptable standard, still neck turned over .0015".

    Matt,
    Are you referring to a WSM or a SAUM?
    I pretty much always stuck with the 210 LRBT in the SAUM
    Its been very good to me.
    Berger has taken that bullet out of production..:mad:
    Now a days its 200g hybrids and 200g 20x.
