I have a 300Wby in a Sako rifle with a 24 inch barrel. Well the other day I took it out and chronographed it to my suprize it was doing 3246fps. The load is 180TTSX Barnes over 83grains of Rl19 and a Rem 9 and a half magnum primer. It grouped .950 at 100yds and about 1.25 at 200yds. This as it turns out is a pretty flat shooting setup which I always thought it was. This older cartridge to me is still hanging in there with a lot of the newer ones. Another bonus is the brass seems to last a long time a real added bonus with the price of brass here in Alberta now a days.
