My guess would be 7-800 rounds worth of speed before you swich barrels. Its gotta be a screamer. Sounds like a rockin wildcat! I wish theyd call it a 264wsm, I just get bothered by the metric system. But It would fit the criteria of all but the factory ammo. I would rather have the choice of going to a 150gr with the 270wsm, in the off chance that ''it gets pressed into elk/caribu'' but thats JUST my opinion. Theres plenty of guys here who would take a 264 elk hunting, and come home with an elk. They are capable, but Id rather have the bigger bullet. JMO
