Wow, that guy must be figuring in about circa 1950 dollars.
Depending on barrel length, you can run the 220 gr Sierra SBT at 2900-3000 fps and you should get a solid 3000 fps with the 200 gr Nosler Partition. The partition is the tougher bullet but the 220 Sierra has the best BC of any 8mm mass produced bullet. When I finally get some time I'm going to load up some 220's and some IMR 7828. Good luck with yours and great buy!
