The 223 WSSM is one of the fastest factory rounds (Not a wildcat) with loaded ammo,brass
and bullets readily available.
I have loaded mine to 3900 ft/sec with a 64 grain bullet and 4400+ with a 40 grain ballistic tip.
The barrel is a 26" 1 in 15 twist 3 groove.
There are lots of wildcats that will exceed this but this is a factory round.
