300WIN Velocity

I am going out tomorrow to play with a new 300 win. My last one ran at 3130 with 185 hybrids and my new beasty was throated around the 190's and has a 34" pipe I have no exsperience with a barrel over 30" I don't exspect more than 15-18fps per inch am I on par or should I see something different??

Yep, horrible harmonics unless you have a 1.250" straight tube.

Re: 300WIN Velocity

Just depends on the barrel. Some are fast, some are slow and some are average. I have one incredible 300 winchester shooting a 180 grain bullet over 3300 fps with a listed loading manual load and no pressure, crazy.

You might try some Reloader-17.I got 3220fps in my 26" barrel 300 Win. Mag with 72.5grs of Reloader-17 and a 180gr Speer Deep Curl bullet.Groups in the 1/2" range.

Re: 300WIN Velocity

I'm not knocking your decision on barrel length, just hope its fat or your using a sleeve for support. I know its kinda like a ford vs chevy thing, but 3250 with a 190 I consider a mild load in my short throat 300wbys, I can do it with Imr4350, one is a 28" the other a 30". I figured with that much barrel you would be trying 215-240grn pills and a bunch of retumbo or H1000. You might want to check into the weatherby next go round, I sometimes hunt with the 28" barreled one and it shoots 208 amaxs at 3160 with H1000 and right at 3110 with 4831sc, just a thought.
