Re: Very happy with my gun!

If anyone is board and wouldn't mind running some numbers for me to check and make sure My numbers are right.

I am tying to figure out the muzzle velocity



.308 168 SMK with a BC of .462?

100 yard zero

Scope height 1.90

altitude 4600

Temp 55

Pressure 30.28

Humidity 38


Shot 510 yards and had to dial 3.1 mil.



I came up with 2576 FPS

Any help is greatly appreciated

Very nice rifle and shooting. 5 shot groups are great, 3 shot groups are great, but that first cold bore drilling the center of home plate= ahhhhhhhh thats what it's all about for me. I aint much of a paper puncher lately outside of set up or load development, so excluding your upcoming match...........first ones the only one and one shot groups are the best= because that's all it took.
