Re: Is a 24" barrel a waste of time for the 300WSM

Not sure is you saw other post about my 300WSM or not..
I have a 24" rock barrel 11 twist. I get 3000 fps with 190 gr bullets.. safely

with the 175's I can reach 3200 easily... but accuracy is at 3000 fps...

I bet with velocities over this you're gonna wear the barrel out alot quicker...

Keep in mind the rock barrel has alot to do with this...

    Thanks for all your info guys , I was just wanting something that has a little more power than the 308 yet weighs the same.

    Why is it that a mike Rock barrel can give higher velocities that say a Lilja or Hart of the same twist ??

    The I.D. is a little tighter.. creating more velocity... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
