I personally know of three .264 Win mags that are shooting 120gr Barnes bullets running 3,400 plus fps with IMR 7828 SSC sub .5moa.

Maybe a better question is why would anybody build a belted magnum anything when there are much more efficient and easier to load for chamberings ? 264 wm , 300 wm , weatherby anything , 7mm rem mag , all technologically obsolete. It's like going down to the chevy dealer and buying a brand new 1976 corvette because you want a fast car and passing up a brand new modern Ferrari. If you are nostalgic then find a vintage corvette not a 2014 car packed with 1976 technology. Just my opinion of belted magnums.

another question would be why someone would pay 3k for a custom rifle in a custom chambered 264 rouind to maybe gain 200 fps over a 600 dollar 264mag or better yet pick up a sendero in 264 and at 1200 bucks youll not be able to outpace it by much or out shoot it by much for 3 times the money. Belts might not server a purpose but the dont hurt a thing either.
