    Mechanical (ie short-range) accuracy will be identical, limited by the rifle, ammo, and you.

    7mm RM or WSM has a ballistics advantage over .300WM because its bullets have higher BC values at a given velocity range.

    7mm RM/WSM can shoot a 0.61-0.63 BC bullet (160-170gr) at 3000-3100 fps, or a 180gr 0.65-68 BC bullet at 2900-3000 fps.
