Well, here's the deal:

It is not a hunting rifle.
It is a tactical rifle, that is why they named it what they did.
It is made for taking out human targets at a considerable distance, like bad guys holding hostages in a building and you closest place to set up for a clear shot is the rooftop of the next high-rise building down the street. That's why it has a bipod, in some of those situations, you get to take a good rest from the prone position. The .300 Mag carries a lot more energy when you are shooting at these long distances, that is why it is a .300 Mag.

You could still hunt with it, although it certainly would not be the gun I would choose to carry afield for hunting game.
There are plenty of hunting rifles chambered for .300 Mag and more powerful cartridges, they are used for hunting big game at long distances and dangerous game, like grizzlies, polar bear and big cats.

As far as the 'leg blasting' comment goes, a big gun is just fine for shooting whitetail deer. If I am hunting with a magnum and I'm shooting at deer, I aim for the head. If I miss, the deer runs away. But any hit is as good as a kill, without fail.. so far for me. I grazed the top of a big whitetail doe's noggin with a .264 Mag once, and she went down like a sack of potatoes. Not dead, but completely unconscious. I walked the hundred yards between her and I with not not a twitch from her and dispatched her with a slice of my 3 1/2" Case sheath knife.
I will not shoot at a running deer. I hunt for meat only, so I don't want to waste any of it.

All very good points...
and let me add... I am an avid elk hunter... unlike sitting in a tree stand I have to go hunt...
very long ranges are typical... and elk is a huge animal, more than enough meat to feed my family for a year!

sadly this is the third year in a row I didn't get a moose tag... I hunt them too... far bigger than an elk, towering over a mully or whitetail... When I hut those big Bullwinkle's I take a .308 Norma Mag... that sits neatly above a 30-06 and this 300 win mag... has the kinetic energy to make a clean kill on an animal this size...

Tatical yes... but it not limited too.....

The 270, 308, 30-06 and the 300WM are the standard range of deer hunting cartridges around here. I don’t see anything overpowered in that regard.

For people that wanting to shoot deer closer up with the 300WM, they do have light load cartridges. That are slower and have less energy than a 308.

You can get ammo that has more speed and energy than a 308.
You can get ammo with the same speed and more energy than a 308.
You can get ammo with the same speed and energy as a 308.

With a good ammo selection, I consider a 300WM a good all around hunting rifle for anything the size of a deer or larger.

The only reasons that I wouldn't choose it to carry hunting is that it doesn't fit my criteria as for as how it is built. Caliber it is chambered for isn't the issue for me. I prefer bolt actions, but I don't want a bipod or a very long barrel, as I hunt in some pretty thick stuff. I want a weaver flip mount scope so I can use my iron sights if conditions warrant it. These points alone rule out the title piece for me and my normal hunting, and there are other reasons too.

the ammo is ridiculously over powered and over priced, especially for deer. all it does is make guys flinch and get poor hits. Plenty of elk and moose are taken with handguns, muzzleloaders and bows, every year. Obviously, then, it's not all that hard to get plenty close enough to use a 308. Head shots at not needed on big game for reliable kills, with the animal falling within 50 yds, with something like the 308, a Nosler Partition softpoint and a decent chest hit. Simply avoid the shoulder, and don't shoot at the south end of a north facing animal, and the 308 softpoing will do fine. Head shots, taken from the side, can easily result in shooting off the lower jaw, letting the animal run for days, until it dies a horrible death from starvation. The only humane headshot is from above/front, as the animal lowers its head to eat or drink, and it must be done at 50 yds and less if you dont have a braced firing position, or at 100 yds and less if you do. Otherwise, you can still end up shooting off his snout.
