Feenix, that data might be wrong for the 270 Ackley...I don't even think a 7 STW could push a 175 grain to 3100. Good lookin charts though, great way to compare different loads/cartridges.
My 7STW load with 180 Berger VLD's is right at 2900 fps MV. I'd like to see the 7STW with Berger 168 VLD's...My load is at 2925 fps MV.
I would like to see the .280 AI calculated into that with the Berger 168 VLD's. As well as the 7RM with the 168 VLD's.
My 7RM 180 VLD load is right at 2830 fps MV.
My 7RM 168 VLD load is at 3,000.
I'm curious to see how these numbers stack up on the chart.
Seriously, no sarcasm, I would love to see how they do on the 1K chart in your ballistic program.
