Model 70 Winchester pre-WWII has 300MAG as the caliber. My question is what 300Mag?

I didn't think Winchester had a model 70 Rifle 300MAG that early or that the Winchester 300mag was available that early. Was there another 300 mag chambering for the Model 70?

The only .300 Magnum that existed before WWII was the .300 H&H Magnum.

introduced as a cartridge in 1925, and chambered in the Win M70 in 1937.

The next .300 Magnum in the Model 70 was the .300 Winchester magnum introduced in 1963.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
