    2500-2700fps is hauling for a 300gr. I can't remember how many pounds of powder I went thru when I first got my Savage, several. Lots different powders, bullets, bullet weights, sabots, sub bases. Lil Gun shotgun powder was my favorite but was looked down upon.

    Got a chance to chrony it. 2450 fps. I'm going to call Luke tomorrow to see what kind of pressures I can put on this thing. I'd like around 2800 if the accuracy maintains.

    I bought an Arrowhead smokeless Encore barrel last year and love it so far, but I’ve hung on to my NULA smokeless just in case. I’m shooting 275gr Parker Ballistic Extremes and 4198.
