This was chronographed with the Oehler 35P and no pressure signs on brass.

    Well, it is a little ragged......................
    BUT, give us the gear details!!
    My 300 winny build should be done anyday----the wait is killing me. Am planning on using the 215 berger also.

    It was a 27 1/2" Benchmark barrel in a sendero contour, Vais muzzlebrake, on a Remington 700 action. The load i used is 78.0gr. of Retumbo, Remington Brass, and a Federal 215 primer, with a 215 Berger Hybrid .696 BC the average muzzle velocity was 2989 fps at 5752 foot elevation. i will be dialing this one in out to 1300+ yards just was doing some load development first. This load is over max so if anyone sees this make sure to use a lighter load in your rifle and work your way up to what best fits your gun! here is a couple pics of this rig.
