300 WSM or 300 rsaum velocities

Wondering if anyone has load data for these. I'm really curious if anyone is shooting the heavier bullets, 215 or 230 gr. Any idea on velocity???

Thanks

With RL17, I was able to get about 2930 fps shooting the 210 Bergers out of a 24 3/8the" barrel. One of our members swithched from the 210' to the 215's in his 300 WM and got about 50 fps more velocity from them. The 215's have a shorter bearing surface.

RL17 gave me about 200 fps more velocity then other powders so subtract 200 fps from the above if you use another powder.
