It’s a great gun but I’m consolidating calibers... I just got a weatherby Mark V in 7mm so I decided to let it go

That’s a great rifle there!  300 wby should’ve shot just about as flat as a 7mm, no?  Glws 

Both great calibers but the edge goes to the 7mm. At 500 yrds roughly 30 inch drop where as the 300 is right around 47 inch drop at the same distance..

I believe a high BC 7mm in relevant weight will meet the 300wby. ELDX has a BC of like .62 and it has more speed and energy at 500 as a Nosler  Ballistic Tip @ 500yds. The Nosler BC falls short at .46 though. IMO Weatherbys beat up your shoulder LOL Awesome calibers though. 257wby is my fav. 

Good luck! Great rifle!!!!!!!!

Not really, the 300 will do everything the 7mm will with more punch and less wind drift. To truly compare you need to select bullets for intended use and which ate comparable in jacket thickness and expansion rate. The 160gr in 7mm and 180 gr in 300 fit that criteria. Actually only an inch difference at 500.See chart below. That being said, the 270wby is probably the best all around caliber for north american game with the exception of brown bear21259C3F-3933-4139-A0DC-FE386500677C.thumb.jpeg.56779fddf416199cc80b4c046ed02bc7.jpeg

You are correct I looked at load data quick..  now u mention it I looked again was not even close to same bullet... some how I looked at 200 grain 300 and 140 grain 7mm on the ballistics chart..
