Max velocity of MK 240\'s

Still kicking my options around between a .30 and .338 big magnum. Who has driven the 240 mk at velocities over 3200? maybe more. If so, what caliber and barrel length were you using? Any problems with these bullets coming apart at that velocity?

I would assume the 240 mk is generally accepted as the best Looonnnggggg range .30 cal bullet for the big magnums. Any body shot it successfully at a mile on multiple occasions. How far with good consistancy, 1800, 2000, more???

As always thanks,

John

Re: Max velocity of MK 240\'s

Below is a quote from Darryl Cassel past posting.

"In the 300 Tomahawk (imp 300 RUM) and using 240 gr bullets in a 34" barrel, I have churned up 3225 FPS using 872."
