Cool video , I'll be installing a RifleBasix trigger and bedding a 300 WSM in a HS stock tomorrow then working up a load for it , this rig has a 30" 1-10 Rockcreek barrel on it the owner wants a 1500yd varmint gun , he is bringing a 200 molyed 210 gr Bergers , 4lbs of VVN560 , 4lbs or VVN165 and 500 Winchester cases to sort through and match prep for this gun.

I haven't done alot of load work for the 300 WSM ,he is expecting 3000 FPS out of it , not sure that it'll do it and keep any kind of case life.

what are the specs on your barrel and whats your load look like , 2900fps seems mid range to mild for the 190's

I use Norma cases, 190 grn smk's, h4831sc out of a 24" shilen 1-10". I haven't chronoed my load yet, so I don't know for sure, just more of an educated guess.

With a custom action, 30" barrel and Norma brass, the 300 WSM will push a 210grn bullet at 3000fps. My gunsmith, here in town, shoots a 300 WSM with a 30" barrel, and he pushes the 208grn A-Max at a tad over 3000fps.
