    Already had someone on FB get belligerent with me that people will push the 250 to near 3000fps in a 300WM....lol.

    The 300WM in my best Rick Harrison voice. Best I can do is 2700

    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... ;)

    Who thinks the 26 Nosler would be pretty legit with the 153?

    With that much bc the 6.5 Creedmoor would be a legit 2000y elk cartridge.

    I know, that horse is dead. Couldn't resist.

    Back when the Game Department managed feral horses a one a day limit had plenty of long range bullet testing opportunity.o_O

    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
