If he wants a wildcat, then have him look at the 30/375 S.I. It should top out with the 210 in a 28" barrel right at 3100 fps, burning about 79-81 grains of H1000. Do a google custom search in the upper right side of the screen. I just shot mine on Saturday.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Depending on barrel length, if it's a 28" or longer I would go with the 300WSM those speeds can be hit or at least really close to them in a GREAT cartridge.

Re: what am I looking for?

Thanks guys. He's torn between .284 and .308 caliber. After reading about the 215 hybrids that Broz posted, he likes the sound of the .308 caliber. Crunching numbers between it and what we're getting from our senderos, our .284 still has plenty of energy and less drop and wind drift. It's his decision to make, not mine. Thanks for the ideas and info. I really liked Broz's in depth thread on the 215 hybrids. Good job Broz!

The 30/375 S.I. will so that with a non-belted case in a std. length (96 gr. capacity). Case life is good and they are easy to form from 375 Ruger. Quality micrometer dies are available from Whidden in a timely manner. Mine shoots lights out......Richwhat am I looking for?-dscf0491.jpg

OOPS! My pic is still crossways! It will top out about 3100' with the 210-215 Bergers. You can push the 215"s as fast as the 210's because of the short bearing surface.
