Hey fellas what kinda MV and SD are you getting with a 300SMK and/or 300Scenar in a 338RUM?

Barrel length and twist info also appreciated!

Thanks!

Am getting 2830fps and SD of about 10-15 out of a HART 28", 1-10" 338 EDGE and the 300g SMK.

WIth the standard 338 RUM and the factory 26" tube, I think most are getting about 2700fps or so. Which is still plenty for that 300g SMK.
