The ballistics of a 150 WSM are kind of astounding compare to a .30-06. Way more remaining energy at 500 yards and going about 100 FPS faster than the same bullet out of a .30-06. A deer or hog won't know the difference though.
The Winchester factory numbers.

Mind you, the WSM isn't shorter(isn't really a magnum either). It's actually a wee bit longer than the .308 and uses more powder than either the '06 or .308 with like bullet weights.
Biggest difference between the .30-06 and the .300 will be the length of the receiver. And the possibility of not being able to find replacement ammo in small places should the airline lose the case your ammo is in.
"I want one." is a reason to buy anything.
