    I'm waiting on a chronograph right now so I was wondering if someone could estimate fps for my 338 LM load.

    32 inch barrel
    300gr SMK
    94gr Retumbo
    COL 3.87
    Federal 215M primers


    Thanks

    I got 3000 fps out of my 30" barrel with that exact load.
    Depends on who made your barrel, but 3000 to 3100 would be a good estimate.
