It's probably going to be the 130's but we'll see. Going to load up a batch of 130's first and see what I got, looking for 3800 fps. Anybody run these through a 300 Mag?

The factory 300 wby ammo running the 130gr Barnes lists MV at 3650 fps. I imagine you could get another 150 fps out of them when you work up a load. It'll probably shorten your barrel life though.

All I want is about 5 box's, that will last me the rest of my life. I get 3550 with 150's.

Holy copper fouling Batman! You'll get a few accurate rounds and build up a lot of copper fouling from the solids. Have a good copper cleaning solution and clean about every 10 rounds, maybe less.

barrels are easy to clean.... I had to clean mine about that much with the 110grs running 3400 out of the .270

I don't think the fouling will be as bad as you think. I run the 80gr ttsx at 3850. Does it foul yes but it takes more than a box plus to get it loose accuracy. Them foam it,, run patches and it's back to normal.

It has a 1-10 and I'm thinking maybe running a 1-12 on it. Yes, No, maybe?
