    Essentially, it is irrelevant as to which "short magnum" you buy, be it RCM, WSM, WSSM, etc. They are designed to mimic the standard magnum caliber they represent; in this case .300 Winchester Magnum. Quality components, regardless of the variations in case design, should produce similar or same results.

    RCM calibers are expensive and the only rifles really available for them are Rugers. The "WSM" at least opens you up to other rifle manufacturer options.

    I've still yet to ever see a 300 RCM rifle in any of the stores here in Colorado, where short magnums are rather popular. However Gander had a bunch of 300 RCM on clearance, still 40$ a box.

    I wasn't a big fan of the concept, using fairy dust to equal 24" barrel ballistics from a 20" barrel, because it can only be done with factory ammo. Now that those powders are available to the public, I guess the whole idea isn't so bad. But if you're happy with your rig, that is all that matters. If I was going for a short mag, I'd still be choosing the WSM's, personally. But then again...if I found a killer deal on a 338 RCM....
