If the 25 fps rule per inch applies then his speeds are in line with ours. 2970 out of mine with 57.5 and 2940 with 56.5. 24" barrel.

At 3140FPS out of a 28" barrel is pretty good.. I run about 3020 max out of my 26" Cooper with 58.5gr. 25-30 FPS/in would still only get me to 3080. I'm actually pretty content at 2970. Bullet performance/killing power of the 140's is excellent from 50-1000 yards on game.

You are right. My thinking cap was not strapped on tight. Should be around 3050 to 3080. Also, he is about 2 grains over Hodgdon max charge. I know I can get 3030 in my 24 if I push really hard. However I was able to get 11 reloads out of my lapau brass at my current charge weights. They are done though now. Loose primer pockets.
