The .300 Winchester Magnum (also known as .300 Win Mag or 300WM) (7.62×67mmB, 7.62x66BR) is a belted, bottlenecked magnum rifle cartridge that was introduced by Winchester Repeating Arms Company in 1963. The .300 Winchester Magnum is a magnum cartridge designed to fit in a standard rifle action. It is based on the .375 H&H Magnum, which has been blown out, shortened, and necked down to accept a .30 caliber (7.62 mm) bullet.

It is a popular selection for hunting moose, elk, and bighorn sheep as it can deliver better long range performance with better bullet weight than most other .30 caliber cartridges. Military and law enforcement departments adopted the cartridge for long range sniping and marksmanship. As a testament to its accuracy, since its introduction it has gone on to win several 1,000-yard (910 m) competitions. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

The .300 Win Mag sees use in long-range benchrest shooting competitions and has been adopted by law enforcement marksmen and by a few specific branches of the U.S. Military for use by snipers. Maximum effective range is generally accepted to be 1,210 yards (1,110 m) with ammunition incorporating low-drag projectiles. Sub 1 minute-of-angle (MOA) accuracy out to 1,000 yards (910 m) is not unusual in precision-built rifles firing match-grade ammunition.

The short neck was thought to hinder accuracy because it would prevent the alignment of cartridge to the bore, but this is rarely an issue either today or when the cartridge was designed. The fact that the cartridge has gone to win many 1,000-yard (910 m) matches suggests that such a concern is unfounded. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Sometimes a few specimens require more dissuasion than the old 30-06 or 308 Winchester typically hand out. While the 308 Win. kicks up about 2,620 fps muzzle velocity and 2,743 foot-pounds muzzle energy with a 180-grain bullet, the 30-06 Springfield jumps out at 2,750 fps with 3,022 f-p energy. The venerable 300 Win. Mag., which has been roaming the fields since 1964, cranks that up to 2,950 fps and 3,478 f-p energy. The short, fat 300 WSM, released on an unsuspecting public in the second year of the 21st century, boosts that slightly to 3,010 fps and 3,621 f-p. (

The 300 Win. Mag. is a classic “standard-length” cartridge based on the belted 375 H&H Magnum case. It fits actions designed for 30-06-length cartridges. The 300 WSM is a rebated rim, short-action round that fits 308-length rifle actions. It gets the necessary powder volume to make up for its shorter length via the fatter diameter body of its non-belted, 404 Jeffery-based parent case. (Source: winchester.com)

Now, if you take this same bullet down to the 2,620 fps MV of the 308 Win., it would zero 2.9 inches high at 100 yards, peak 3 inches high at 120 yards, and drop 3 inches low at 265 yards, your maximum point blank range.

The .300 Winchester Magnum (also known as .300 Win Mag) is a popular, belted, bottlenecked magnum rifle cartridge that was introduced by Winchester Repeating Arms Company in 1963 as a member of the family of Winchester Magnum cartridges. The .300 Winchester Magnum is a magnum cartridge designed to fit in a standard length action. It is based on the .375 H&H Magnum, which has been blown out, shortened, and necked down to accept a .30 caliber (7.62 mm) bullet.

The .300 Winchester is extremely versatile and has been adopted by many shooting disciplines. The cartridge has found use by hunters, target shooters, military units, and law enforcement departments. Hunters found that the cartridge was an effective all round hunting cartridge. The .300 Win Mag remains the most popular .30 caliber magnum with American hunters, despite being surpassed in performance by the more powerful .300 Weatherby Magnum and the newer .300 Remington Ultra Magnum.
