200 SMKs question??

I was wondering if I could push 200gr SMKs out of my 300 Win Mag at close to 3000fps, but I still want to be easy on brass. My rilfe has a 26 inch barrel. If I could get 5 firings off one set of brass that would be ok with me. I have been using IMR 4350 and just bought some H4831 to try. If this is something impossible, let me know. Thanks in advance, Jake

A 20 inch barrel on a 338 lapua is more of a flame thrower. -Longshot38

Ok, thanks for the input. I'm going to test some loads I've made up and see what they'll do for me.
