It's radically overkill for that bullet weight at those ranges.
Yeah, your impact velocity with 150 or 165 grain bullets would still be faster than I'd want at the ranges you're talking. Most bullets perform most reliably at impact velocities of 2800 fps or less (there are a few exceptions of course).

I did a lot of research on the 300 WSM when I was considering buying one. It truly is a great caliber, but for the type of hunting (game and distances) I do, it was just too much. So, I just keep killing deer with my 7.62x39 and 308 Win.

If I lived where there were Elk tho... I'd be all over a 300 WSM faster than you could say "Bob's your uncle".
