It would and it would push barrels a little faster than that......Rich

If you are thinking this route, why don't you go with a 6.5 STW

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

Re: Low recoil long range cartridge

6br is the king of long range/low recoil.
It's smaller than you requested.
But, it's an incredible cartridge.
Savage chambers some very nice rifles in 6br.
Have a look at 6mmbr.com

Re: Low recoil long range cartridge

I don't know what you long range but my 25-06 has worked well for me to 600 yards. Very low recoil and outstanding accuracy from my cooper rifle. With berger bullets I've taken elk at 470 yards.
