What is out there that will push the 210 or 215 bergers above the 3100 fps mark in the 30 caliber? Got a friend looking to get a wildcat 30 caliber.

    I am already getting a 7MM AM. I know he's probably not going to spend as much as I did. I've been trying to tell him to go first class. Thanks for the reply.

    ... and probably the most cost effective, if there is such a thing these days.

    28" barrel on a 300 win will get you 3000 with 215's. Off the shelf dies and ammo if needed. Easy load work up and will do all that is needed from a 30 cal. Not to mention enough barrel life to allow a good amount of practice and good quality brass available.
