    Not with retumbo but I’m getting 3190fps with a 26” krieger barreled sako 75 7mm wsm with 162 ELDx. 66.4 grains rl 23 and half moa or better to 500 yards.. I would give rl23 and 26 a try. I couldn’t get anymore than 3040fps with retumbo with similar grouping to my current load.

    Check out Alliant’s website. They use 24” barrels listed over 3100fps. It’s a speed demon..

    That's pretty quick. I wouldnt count on that as a norm. I have a good share of experience with the rem mag which is a twin to the wsm and I ran 3145 in my last 7. I ran it a bit harder but I wasnt comfortable with it.
