After being involved in many threads and discussions that have touched on this topic, some being more heated than others, maybe we can get some input from some of the local experts. I admit that my attraction to magnums such as the 300wm, the 338wm, and now the 300rum is somewhat of a bigger is badder philosophy that may or may not be warranted. I do like the "ability" to get more velocity and distance out of a rifle. We all know that a 30-06 is more than capable of taking everything most of us will ever hunt. With that said, are there any real advantages in shooting mangnums??
