    I was wondering if I could push 200gr SMKs out of my 300 Win Mag at close to 3000fps, but I still want to be easy on brass. My rilfe has a 26 inch barrel. If I could get 5 firings off one set of brass that would be ok with me. I have been using IMR 4350 and just bought some H4831 to try. If this is something impossible, let me know. Thanks in advance, Jake

    Ok, thanks for the input. I'm going to test some loads I've made up and see what they'll do for me.
