300 WSM RL 17 Accubond

Hey Guys,

Looking for a starting point on my ballistic charts as I do not own a chrono.

Shooting a Remy 700 w/ 24" tube. Load is 65 grains of Reloder 17, Fed 215 Primer, and 180 Gr Accubond.

Anybody out there running anything similar so I can get an idea of velocity. Was thinking like 3000-3050 fps?

    With fast and slow barrels, loose and tight chambers etc. trying to guess the FPS is about as easy as picking the winning lottery numbers.

    put a taget at 500 yard get your real fire come ups and run it from there.
