    Is any one aware of such a chambering and how does it perform?

    bwalker,I don't have that info,i went straight to my cartridge and it holds 2 grains of water less than a standard 300wm using Lapua brass so i'm told..I use a hat full of vv560 with a 187 BIB in a 13.5 twist barrel 30in long,this gives about 3300fps..this is high pressure for sure..JR..Jeff Rogers

    Redding sells dies for the 300WM improved but I don't know anybody that has one. I was interested in this myself but don't know if it is worth the trouble.

    What would be the point of an improved version. About all you would gain is about 50fps.

    How about a 300 Dakota?
