    Am getting 2830fps and SD of about 10-15 out of a HART 28", 1-10" 338 EDGE and the 300g SMK.

    WIth the standard 338 RUM and the factory 26" tube, I think most are getting about 2700fps or so. Which is still plenty for that 300g SMK.

    Lapua only make the .338 Scenars at 250 grains. No 300 grain Lapua bullets at the moment!
