300wsm striker

Does anybody know what chrono speeds to expect from the 14" barrel?

    It depends on what bullet weight you are shooting. I am getting 2670 fps with 125 ballistic tips out of my 14" 30-30AI Contender. It is a deer smoker.

    I have a ballistic twin to the 300 WSM: my 30-338 Win Mag.

    I shoot this in a 16.5" Encore barrel and get the following:

    Berger 175 VLD @ 2846 FPS
    Nosler 180 BT @ 2800 FPS
    Hornady 165 IB @ 2826 FPS

    The 300 WSM should, in similar length barrels, do virtually the same.

    Regards
    Rog
