I have two .338 caliber wildcats (supressed) based off the 300 RUM case. I also have a .308 caliber wildcat based off the 300 RUM. For the .338's I shoot the 300g Berger VLD'S and get 2800 - 2900 FPS with 94.0 - 95.0g of H1000 and CCI 250 primers.
I am working up a load for the .308 230g Berger with the same powder/primer combo.
I have no doubt the 230g VLD will perform well in the 1,000 - 2,000 range.
Recoil?? IMO, If you shoot magnums and are concerned about recoil, you need to consider a smaller caliber.
