On a side note, none of the deer that I shot w/it complained of it being too slow!!

Do they ever complain about anything after being shot?

I think it was 92 or 93 gr of H1000. Can't remember off the top of my head though.

My 338 EDGE has a 28" tube and I get 2840fps with the 300g SMK. My load is the standard 92g H-1000.
