Re: 7,21 Firebird

What the heck is a Meter?

On the serious side, congrats on a sweet rig from one lefty to another. That Firebird is an awesome cartridge. I'd be willing to be you can best 3300fps with N570 but if it shoots that good I'd leave it alone! If you're using hunting VLD's you probably won't be able to go much faster without separations anywho.


keep us posted!!
