    Hi!

    I don"t shoot the 300 Dakota, but I think that you should be able to get 100fps more than the 300 win mag.

    Anyone know the case volume of a 300 win mag? The Dakota is 97gr of water. There is some formula for calculating increased velocity potential with the increased grains, but I forget what it is???

    Anyone help on this?

    Cheers,
    CL

    I don't shoot a 300Dak but I have a 330Dak, it would be comparable to a 300 Weatherby. Brass is expensive, I would only go that route if your interested in exotic rounds. Otherwise goith the Weatherby or WinMag.

    FWIW,
