    You should be able to run the 175 (forget the 210) inbetween 2600-2700 depending on which case, powder combo you use.

    The 175 is no problem and some shoot the 190 SMK with
    reloader powders the 1-12 with 26" may help depends on other
    things. one of my 308 shoots 175 at 2650 24" barrel and the 26" barrel
    gets 2655 same load Have 2 300 wins difference there of over 100 fps
    and one inch difference in length. difference whos to know...
