Real World Velocity: 325 WSM+35 Whelen

For those loading these rounds, what velocities are you actually getting? In what rifle? I'm looking for a >30 round to play with (and shoot elk with). Guess I should throw in .338-06 also. I would just buy a .338 Win Mag, but it shoots much further than I will, and at a pretty stiff price. I have plenty of published data; need real experience over your chono.
i own a kimber 8400 montana in 325wsm. with 200gr nosler accubond i am getting 3050fps. after they replaced the barrel...accuracy was quite good. with the same load in a friends kimber, he gets 2975. guess all barrels aren't created equal.
