Is there a cartridge out there that will send the 215 at 3,000 fps in a 22” barrel? I thought maybe the 30 Nosler with N570 or a 300 RUM with Retumbo, H1000, or N570. After packing around long barrels, I’ve been switching to shorter barrels and really like that 22” range with a brake. Anything come to mind without a ton of fireforming? I’d probably have DE chamber with their +P throat to add a little velocity.

Luck of the draw for barrel being fast, hoping your barrel likes reloder 26 or n570, and hoping your rifle wants to run on the top end all make this kind of like throwing darts.

If those all land pretty well I’d say a 30 nosler can do it, a 30-28 would probably get you more head room. A 300 run should, 300 norma imp should

fwiw with rl26 my 21” 300 prc went over 3k fps with a 215 without ejector marks. I won’t tell you the charge but you can call Berger, it was a stiff one. With my supressor on (10inch custom) it doesn’t want to run that high, so I’ve backed it down a couple grains and it’s cruising just over 2850. So I would be looking at more capacity than I have for a legit 215/3000 rifle at that length.

Try out gordons reloading tool.
Nice software to simulate with an larg caliber database. Powder database is rather poor except for vithaovouri powders(despite im an scandinavian i never get that spelled correctly)
