RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .300 WSM

RWS centerfire rifle cartridges in calibre .300 WSM

The .300 WSM is suitable for any type of game in Central Europe - from roe deer to red deer. Based on the optimal cartridge dimensions this cartridge achieves an extended trajectory and very good precision. 

The .300 WSM was the first cartridge of the family of the belt-less Winchester Short Magnums. The cartridge is based on the design of the .404 Jeffery. It has a large case diameter and is short in length. For this reason, the .300 WSM works well in short systems and has roughly the identical performance as the .300 Win. Mag.
