Anyone have any experience with one? How does it compare to a 30.06?

depends on where you are at? How big are your deer, but most important is size of bullet and shot placement. Each one will kill it and each one the deer could run off.

They will both result in death to the animal. The 300 just takes a little guess work out of longer range shots.

Used a 300 Win Mag for the last 20 years. Great caliber for almost all game in North America. Killed 50+ whitetail with It over the years, plus a whole bunch of other game. As far as the question comparing it to a 30-06 for whitetail, I don't think it makes any difference with the same weight bullet. The deer certainly will never know the difference.

It's a little more powerful than a .30-06-with a little more recoil to go with it. It's a fine caliber, one of the finest.

Probably a little overkill for most whitetails but a lot of guys love them some .300 win mag.

I have a great one...it kills'm dead. I'd say it's a little much for Texas deer.

You can swat a fly with a flyswatter, a 12 ounce hammer, or an 8 pound sledge. All will kill it.

Can't think of a situation where a 300 will do something a 30-06 couldn't. That being said I would go 300 for more velocity

In shooting game with both rounds over the years I would say that trauma to the meat and the wound channel is greater from the 300 when shooting the same grain bullets due to the higher velocities, especially when hitting denser tissue or bone. Other than that all I could say is the 300 gives the flatter trajectories for those longer shots.

That's a pretty broad statement. East Texas or hill country 100 yard feeder shots are a damn sight different than Trans Pecos/Big Bend canyon hunting. It ain't necessarily "a little much" for a state as big as ours
