In my experience 3200 is possible with the 350 sierra but I settled on 3100 or thereabouts with the 375 which is actually quite good if you factor in the BC improvement 30-338
PS I know what you mean about that extra speed. When we had a few of these built I was told that we could get 3350 with the 350 Sierras but we found out differently. I guess that's a problem you run into when dealing with wildcats especially when you are among the early experimenters with a cartridge But do the ballistic charts and you will be impressed at the long range potential of the Lehigh 375 at 3100 fps ..t is really awesome!
