i know 3500 sounds fast, and to me it does too. i chronographed over 15 shots all being very consistant. i am using a 28in hart barrel and off the top of my head 91g of reloader 25. now if this sounds that its going to fast maybe my chrono is off but that what it was reading. so back to the bullet if the 175smk shoot so well is their any reasion to be looking for another bullet.
p.s. i will recheck the speeds after hunting seasion is over the range i use is on our hunting land.
