The Norma match 130 grain factory loads averaged 2915 in my 23" 65cm barrel so that sounds about right.
In 6.5x47 Varget gets there fairly quickly also so I'm sure it would do the same in the CM with a bit more powder.

Federal uses AR Comp for their FGMM 308. RL16 is a good guess.

You know, the powders that are usually either hard to find....OR are only rumors being in stock...someday...I'm looking at you RL-26
In my area R16 and H4350\4831 are fairly easy to find.
R26 is out there but you have to be quick.
H1000 is a ghost

I was running 130gr hybrids out of my 26" at 3040fps with a stout load of h4350 but no pressure signs. 2800s seems pretty tame
