Do you have a 30 STW and does it meet the OP's goal? I am asking is because I have an improved version with a 27" Lilja 1:9" 3G barrel and would like to know how to get there or close to it.
I miss read it. I had 3000fps in my head.

Thanks. I had a .30-278 back when I was even more ignorant than I am now. That was about forty years ago. I used 150 grain bullets so fast none ever got to a target. It had a beautiful myrtle wood stock. It was hanging on the mantle above the fireplace when the house burned down. Life is rough sometimes.
