    i would be pleased to find out how fast everyone is getting their 300gr SMKs to go out of a 30" tube with good brass life. i know they can be pushed fast, but is assume it is detrimental to the life of some very expensive Lapua brass. i am hoping for 8-10 reloads @2950-3000fps. Is this reasonable? thanks greg
