7mm Remington speed with 150 grain Ballistic Tips?

Well, I decided to go with the 7mm Remington Magnum for a variety of reasons. What I would like to know, what is realistic speed I should expect in a 7mm Rem Mag, shooting 150 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips in a 26 inch barrel. Gun will be custom Remington 700, Broughton barrel.

Thanks

    Im just guessing, but somewhere around 3200fps. I was getting 3250fps out of mine with 140's and a 26" tube.

    According to Nosler you could get 3,250 ft/sec with a max charge of IMR4350. Their test rifle had a 24" bbl.

    The average max velocity with other powders ran about 100 ft/sec less, give or take.

    Should be in mid to upper 3200's. I get 3240 with 24" tube.

    3150 ft/s in a 24 ".

    A 5 C or a 5 R barrel may give you more vel.

    I have an unfinished 7mm barrel blank that is 29.25 inches long. It will finish up to 27.75 inches long. What kind of velocity would 150 gr BT's get in a 7mm Remington mag with a 26 or even 27 inch barrel? Would it be getting close to the 7mm STW speeds with a long barrel?

    I forgot to mention that the barrel is a Broughton 5c barrel. I like heavy guns, and the barrel is a light varmint contour.
