7RUM 30\" barrel velocity potential?
What do you guys think is a reasonable velocity to expect for the 7RUM (sane max load) in a 30" barrel for the 180 gr VLD and the 200 gr ULD? I am thinking 3000 fps or maybe a little more for the 200 gr would be possible. What do you guys think? Also, would the 1 in 8 twist be appropriate for these long bullets?
P.S. I know about the Allen Mags, not trying to duplicate their performance in a lesser cartridge, just considering my options and want some realistic numbers to compare.
Thanks in advance,
