Yes, I think you can achieve a 300 QPH on both SSB and CW, under the right conditions. I don’t think that rate is sustainable for hours on end, but for peak periods it is.
When I was out on Conway Reef, the CW ops were on fire. Propagation was excellent, and our ops could pick up a lot of calls out of the pileups without tuning. When condx are not great, the rate drops off precipitously.
11 seconds is a generous amount of time for a DX QSO with good ops at both ends.

Mike, as past-president of the Northern California DX Club, you are an expert!
Is 300 Q's an hour attainable in any mode at all?? That's like a QSO every 11 seconds?

Yup. For DXpeditions, it’s all about the QSO rate. So ‘best case’ for with this new version is about 300 Qs an hour, which amounts to the highest QSO rate for a digital mode that I know of.
I can only imagine what is going to happen when "FT8 DXpedition Mode" is released into the wild … :>0
Well this is just a bit weird and seems like we're just one step away from making operator obsolete.... from 425 DX Bulletin
