338 lapua

I'm waiting on a chronograph right now so I was wondering if someone could estimate fps for my 338 LM load.

32 inch barrel
300gr SMK
94gr Retumbo
COL 3.87
Federal 215M primers


Thanks

Re: 338 lapua

I got 3000 fps out of my 30" barrel with that exact load.
Depends on who made your barrel, but 3000 to 3100 would be a good estimate.
