I'm looking in Cartridges of the World 7th Edition (not recent). There are no balistics listed for 300 Wisper, but the caption mentions the 300 Wisper is a 221 Remington case necked up to accept a .308 bullet. I would imagine the two names are in reference to the same cartridge. The book has no listing for 300/221.

.221 fireball is the parent cartritge. The .300 whisper is a wildcat developed by JD Jones of SSK Ind. for military/law enforcement subsonic applications. When refered to as 300/221 it is simply not being refered to as .300whisper because that particular name refers to the JD Jones wildcat. 300/221 is same thing as .300whisper when in reference to a gun made by a manufacurer other than SSK ind. (ex. KKF)or for the purposes of re-loading data.
Thus when in reference to re-loading: .300whisper and .300/221 fireball are both the same thing.

Claymore, I can not speak for others products but, I can say that when I had questions about my whisper mr. JD Jones himself took time out to e-mail me long detailed descriptions of what I wanted to know. The craftsmaship of the SSK upper I own is "TOP NOTCH" and high quality all around. I got every single last dollars worth out of my upper. Something I cannot say about all my guns unfortunatly. Top notch service, attention to detail and a superior product made me happy with SSK. Good luck in your quest for that rifle buddy!
