My 300 SAUM has sent 210s VLDs at about 2900fps, but I'm currently shooting the 190 VLDs at around 2915-2920 from a 24" 1:10 twist.
You'll need someone like Accuracy Systems out of Colorado to do the build for you, otherwise you're going to have serious issues sourcing a bolt to use.
I've taken mine out to a mile on sub MOA steel plates.
I'm also running an AADMOUNT and would agree that it's an awesome optic mount, but I don't believe that in a semi-auto platform, recoil is ever an issue unless you're using pure junk.
Recoil on a bolt action is 10x more violent than with a semi auto, but that doesn't mean you should cut corners on your optics or mounts.
