All of you who play Metallica and metal sorta stuff, how fast can you downpick?

I can at about 180 bpm ( 8th notes ) :/

I downpick stabwound. I'd say, last I checked, it was 8th notes at 240bpm. You really only get so fast. I find mixing alt picking into down picked passages makes for a nice smooth sounding riff transition.

About 240 BPM with eight notes, but I am most comfortable around 220 or so before I start pushing it.

Also, for anyone reading and before this gets asked, the two songs I found helped with practice are:
Metallica- Blackened
Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast

surely that would sound really choppy, seeing as its all alternate picked on record for a smooth sound?
