338 Edge Velocity Information

I realize that there are a lot of posts out there discussing the 338 Edge. However, some are older posts and I wanted to get the most current information if you please. I need the muzzle velocity information with the different powders you guys are using on four different combinations of barrel lengths and bullets:

30" w/300 SMK

28" w/300 SMK

30" w/250 SMK or Accubond

28" w/250 SMK or Accubond

All responses providing information or confirming another posting in the thread will be very much appreciated. BTW, I really do not need any 225 grain bullet information. Thanks in advance.

Re: 338 Edge Velocity Information

do you want the highest velocity that can be obtained or the velocity with the most accuracy?

Dave thanks for your response.... I am seeking the information on the velocity that the shooters get when they are shooting accurate enough to use it for hunting. In other words, their hunting load velocity. But, if you have other numbers, that will also shed light. Don't be shy.
