The best!

The 270 WSM is not great. It could be good, but all 277 bullets are made with an eye for 270 Win. Therefore many explode or generally give poor performance.

So, the 300 WSM is best! Why 150 gr bullets? Those are generally geared for 308 velocities.

3300fps is fast....too fast. 3300 fps will make that kind of a barrel burner, but not too bad. Still, I much prefer 2800-3100 fps. Also, the 150 gr bullet likely has a .400 bc. A longer bullet will fly truer and have a high bc.

I shoot 190 Berger VLD's out of my 300 WSM with good results on deer and antelope. For elk, I need to develop a premium bullet load.
