Kinda curious what people are getting for velocity from a properly throated 300 wsm with
225 Eld-m's, or 230 Bergers in a hunting length barrel (27" max).

You bet. With the extra capacity in the WSM, something like Retumbo might work too. Can't get enough in my little case.
Thanks for the info, how much less case capacity does the 300 SS have compared to the WSM ?

I used 7828ssc to get 230s to 2750 fps in my 26" barreled 300 WSM. I'm pretty sure I could get the 230s to 2850-2875 with RL26. 2900 fps would be a stretch for my rifle.

What is your oal with the 230, did you throat your rifle to seat the bullet were it should be?

I'm using a SAAMI spec chamber in a custom barreled Win M70 WSM action. My 230 OTM hybrid load is seated to fit and feed from the magazine at 2.985 OAL. Now that we're discussing the 230s I really need to revisit. I've been using the 200 ELD-X with RL26 at 3015 fps for the last little while.
