25-300win mag impoved

I am wanting a barrel burner! I bought a old new reamer in a pile of stuff and it is a 25-300win mag imp. If i decide to do this it will shoot 110 gr accu-bonds out of a 1-10 twist Brux 28" pipe. what im trying to figure out is what speed do you guys think i can get out of this thing. I would like to know what speed i can reach so i can pick my reticle for my scope.

Before you get all excited about a .25-300 I'd look into some other things before scope reticles. Dies would be my number one priority, custom wild cat dies can be very expensive. If you want something like the that why not just build a .257 Weatherby? That is probably about all the cartridge will duplicate using a .300 WM case.
