I hope to be able to keep them at 3.8" using bergers or scnear 300's, and still reach 3000fps in a 28-30" tube..possible?
Rosco1, 3000fps is a pretty mild load for both my 338 Khan's. One has a 27" barrel and one a 30". Was just shooting some 300 Bergers today out of the 30"...... 103 grains of Retumbo runs 3000 fps on the nose. I have not shot the 300 grain Scenars, but I have the 300 SMKs, 3100 fps to a little over is very achievable with 300 grain pills.
My Nesika action Khan is a single shot, the other is a Wby. I shoot it as a single shot so I don't have to worry about getting my loads to fit the magazine.
