how do i get 300 gr bullets to 3000fps mv out of 338 lapua

So I have a savage 110 BA and some time in the near future I plan on rebarreling it to get a little more oomph out of it. So I was thinking a 1-10 or 1-9 twist with a 28-30" barrel with an improved chamber. So am I on the track here? Any thoughts? Thanks.

improve the case, get a broughton 5c barrel 32-34" 1-10twist, min spec reamer with good bit of taper for good extraction, with a 5/8th degree throat lead angle. Then coat bullets with moly or HBN. That should pass 3050 with ease.

This is funny. When I read the thread title the first thing I thought was improve it and hang a #7 contour, or bigger, 30+ inch tube on it.

Guess everyone else had the same idea/s.

Should be easy with just a longer barrel. We have a 33" pac nor and no problem. 250's up to 3200, 300's 3k

My 338LM Improved will get it done; I have not yet shot my 30" tube standard 338LM. But I plan on doing that Saturday. I can report back then.
