What velocity do you think one might get with the 250 in a 300 PRC? They designed that bullet for saami spec 300 PRC with 8.5 twist.

I'd guess only 2700 and that might take a long barrel. Maybe 3000 fps in a 300 lapua AI
Already had someone on FB get belligerent with me that people will push the 250 to near 3000fps in a 300WM....lol.

Not with a .633 Bearing surface and 35 grains more then the 215 Berger.

Now maybe if they throated it long and had a 40" barrel.... ;)

I might be lucky to hit 3200 to 3250 FPS with my gun that slings the 230smk @ 3400 FPS.

Didn't think I'd smoked anything recently but good to see independent confirmation... ;)

Everyone should note: the seating plug for these new bullets only works in the Hornady higher end CUSTOM DIE SETS! Just a heads up folks

So I am about to have a barrel made for my 300 Weatherby, and was going to get it in a 9 twist.....wondering now if I should get it in a 8.5......, I don’t plan on shooting anything under 200gr with it.....what’s y’all opinion on this Incase I did want to jump up to the 250s

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
