Realistic MVs for .300WSM, .300WM

Hello all,

Been looking at some options for a mid-to-long range big game hunting rifle, and I'm seriously considering these two rounds. I'm curious what kind of real-world MVs y'all have been getting with ~24-26" barrel, 190-210gr bullets, etc.

Thanks,

Monte

26" 300WSM 2850fps with 200gr AB. No signs of pressure at all, very accurate. According to the ladder test, I think I could easily get to 2900fps+ with this rifle.
