    3k should be easy. A 22" 280Rem does 2820fps with that bullet for me.

    I'd be thinking 7828ssc and R-17, if I were you....

    Tanner's got it right. I'd be looking for 3000+fps. I get 3105fps from my 24" barreled 7WSM with IMR7828ssc, and 2950fps from my 22" barreled .280 with the same powder. IMR7828ssc and R17 have also given me great results.
