muzzle velocity

look at 300 win mag SUPER HAMMERHEAD ( code 235A )... muzzle velocity -> 1035 m/s that's 3395.67 ft/s...
Isn't this a little too much? maybe I'm wrong

Re: muzzle velocity

The SAKO website doesn't give a lot of information on the "Super Hammerhead" bullet other than it's a 150 grain relatively short boattail with a large flat lead meplat.

That gives more usable chamber volume than a typical spire point or VLD. Quickload says 3395 fps about right for a 26" barrel if they're using a modern powder, VV-N560 or similar.
With a G1 BC of 0.41 I wouldn't consider it it long range cartridge.
