My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Thanks for the tip Mark!
Too short ? It's longer than the 270 Win, if anything it's too long. I'll be using it for a couple of projects

Too short for a beltless STW clone, is what I was referring to.

Why is it too short? If you blow it out it will be the same as an STW

STW brass length is 2.850"...It's ~1/4" longer than .300 WM brass. Unless that brass can grow like 0.300" when you neck it down, I don't see it working.

It's fatter, if you blow the shoulder up and out, it will have the same capacity as the STW
